On Sunday, February 6, The Pittsburgh Steelers and the Green Bay Packers will face off at Superbowl XLV for what is sure to be a great matchup. The road was long and hard for both teams who battled numerous odds, and now one game away from possibly being named champion.
Green Bay started out as the hot favorite by many people to win the NFC Football Conference before the season started. However, as the season progressed key injuries to many of the team’s star players, Ryan Grant, Nick Barnett and Jermichael Finley kept many people in doubt about the Packers.
The Packers struggled slightly during the season as they had a tough time trying to adapt to the departure of their key injured starters. With the help of players like quarterback Aaron Rodgers and outside linebacker Clay Matthews, the Packers were able to play well enough at the end of the season to not only make the playoffs, but find a way to make it to the Superbowl, as well.
The Pittsburgh Steelers started the season strong at 3-1 with their star quarterback Ben Rothlisberger suspended for the first four games of the season. The Steelers have been one of the more consistent teams in the NFL since the 2010-2011 season started. With a strong defense led by star players James Harrison, LaMarr Woodley and Troy Polamalu, the Steelers look to win their third Superbowl in six years.
The Packers and the Steelers are two historic NFL franchises with a lot of championship history, and this Sunday one of these two teams will add yet another championship to their rich history.
