This Sunday, the Pittsburgh Steelers and Green Bay Packers will meet to play Super Bowl XLV. It is the day every football fan has been waiting for since training camp began.
This year's game involves two compelling teams. Both have bone-crunching defenses, and although they run very different offensive schemes, they are both proficient.
The Steelers use a run-first approach, featuring tailback Rashard Mendenhall, while the Packers hope the arm of their young-gun QB, Aaron Rodgers, will lead them to victory.
This Sunday, I predict that the Pittsburgh Steelers will win, 34-17. I know that readers will look at that, and their heads may explode.
They could start rambling about Aaron Rodgers stats last year against the Steelers—383 yards and four touchdowns, including a rushing TD. They can also tell me about his last game played in a dome, against the Atlanta Falcons in this postseason, and how he took over that game, throwing for 366 yards and three touchdowns.
I also understand how people want A-Rod to win so he can beat Big Ben Roethlisberger and surpass Brett Favre in Pack-Town.
Although the Green Bay Packers are good, I will now tell you five reasons why they don't stand a chance against the seasoned veterans, the Pittsburgh Steelers.
