>Super Bowl XLV: Green Bay Packers vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

24 Jan

>

The AFC Champion Pittsburgh Steelers will take on the NFC Champion Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl XLV (45).

On February 6, both teams will play at Cowboys Stadium in Dallas, TX. Kick-off time is estimated to be around 6:25 p.m. EST.

National Anthem will be performed by Christina Aguilera and the Halftime show will feature a performance by the Black Eyed Peas.

The (14-4) Pittsburgh Steelers defeated the Baltimore Ravens, 31-24, in the divisional round and the New York Jets, 24-19, in the AFC Championship round.

The (13-6) Green Bay Packers defeated the Philadelphia Eagles, 21-16, in the wild card round. They also defeated the Atlanta Falcons, 48-21, in the divisional round and defeated the Chicago Bears, 21-14 in the NFC Championship round.

The Packers are only the second #6 seed to ever make a Super Bowl appearance. The Steelers won the Super Bowl as a #6 seed in Super Bowl XL.

The early Vegas line for this game:
Jan. 24 Packers (-2.5)

My prediction for Super Bowl XLV:
Score – Steelers 24-20
MVP – Troy Polamalu
