The Pittsburgh Steelers and the Green Bay Packers face off in Super Bowl 45. The Steelers have the advantage with the majority of the team has been to a Super Bowl, as opposed to the Packers. I think the Packers have the offensive advantage, and their defense is a little bit behind the Steelers' defense. I think Troy Polamalu is the key player for the Steelers and Aaron Rodgers for the Cheese Heads
My Pick- Green bay 35 Pittsburgh 30
The Packers defeat the Chicago Bears 21-14. The Packers dominated, and ending another game with an interception. The Packers also become the first 6th seeded team ever to reach the Super Bowl. The Packer's defense shut down Chicago. Looks like Obama won't be going to Dallas.
The Jets defeat the Patriots 28-21. They stunned everyone, including me (because i'm a Pats fan). The Jets made some history as the are the first team since 2001 to defeat the Colts and Patriots back-to-back. The Jets also recorded 5 sacks against Tom Brady, a Jets record. Now they face the Steelers in the Conference round game.
The Packers defeat the top seeded Falcons 48-21. Aaron Rodgers threw for 366 yards, while Greg Jennings and Jordy Nelson had 8 catches apiece. Aaron Rodgers dominated, having more yards than the man before him, Brett Favre. The Packers are on the road once more to face either the Seahawks or the Bears. Green Bay really want to go to the Super Bowl.
The Steelers rally back from a 14 point deficit at halftime to win 31-24. Early on, the Ravens dominated, scoring 2 TD's in 27 seconds (1 Defensive). The Steelers used both of their challenges in the first quarter, which was really tough to handle. But the Steelers were determined to get to the AFC championship game, and came back to win.
Auburn defeats Oregon 22-19 in the BCS title game. The key play to this game was when Auburn's running back thought he was down, but really wasn't and ran for 30+ yards. That gave Auburn a chance to win it. At the end, Auburn's kicker kicked a 19 yd field goal and won it for Auburn.
The Ravens destroy the Chiefs 30-7 in the wild card round. The Raven's defense forced 5 turnovers, and the Chiefs only had the 41 yd rush by Jamaal Charles for a TD. The Ravens face the Steelers in the Divisional Round. This game and the Patriots Jets game are both within their division, so it could get interesting.
The Saints lost against the Seahawks. I can't believe it. The Saints are defending Super Bowl champions and were the first team to lose in the playoffs! That is very depressing. I usually root for the underdog unless it's a Patriots game (Go Pats). I'm still sticking with the Steelers as the champions this year.
Andrew Luck has decided to return to Stanford despite the fact Jim Harbaugh will likely leave to the NFL. Luck would have been no.1 QB and overall, but he returned. It may not be a bad thing because look at Tim Tebow. He returned for his senior year and has been doing well for a rookie. That may be a sign for Luck that it may occur to him too. Or he could turn into Jake Locker.
