This week, I pose a simple question. Who will play in Super Bowl XLV? From the NFC we have the Packers and the Bears, and from the AFC we have the Steelers and the Jets.
Let’s take a look at the NFC first.
I have to be honest, I actually watched more of the Bears-Seahawks game than I did of the Packers-Falcons. To me, this one seems sort of split down the line. They’re division rivals, so they know each other well. If I were to pick solely based on last week’s performance, I’d have to go with the Packers after their manhandling of the Falcons (the number 1 seed for the NFC). Chicago did well against Seattle, but to me, Seattle looked terrible.
Now the AFC.
Here is where my bias kicks in. I’m a Steelers fan at heart, but this game has me worried. The Jets have just gone through the Colts and the Patriots over the past two weeks. Combine that with the fact that Pittsburgh looked absolutely awful during the first half against Baltimore, the Jets win against the Steelers on 12/19, and you have what makes for quite the matchup. I’m going to go with my boys though and say Pittsburgh wins the AFC.
There you have it, Steelers-Packers for Super Bowl XLV. What’s your take?
