Super Bowl XLV slates two of the most storied franchises in sports against each other. With two of the most passionate fan bases in all of sports, the Steelers and Packers are sure to make this one of the most memorable Super Bowls of all time.

The Steelers are led by arguably the best defense in the National Football League. They will hit you hard, fast and often. Along with their hard-nosed defense, the Steelers are known for their smash-mouth style offense in which they implement power run with the deep pass.

The Packers have been the most impressive team in the playoffs thus far. The Packers' potent offense is anchored by the playoff leaders in passing yards and rushing yards, Aaron Rodgers and James Starks. Their defense, led by a dominant secondary including Charles Woodson, Nick Collins and Tramon Williams, has been just as impressive as their offense. Last week, they intercepted the Chicago Bears three times in their 21-14 victory.

That’s the big picture. Now lets get a little more in depth with the top 10 key matchups of Super Bowl XLV.
