Superbowl XLV: Packers vs. Steelers Rivalry Rekindled

IRVING, TX - JANUARY 31:  Quarterback Aaron Ro...Image by Getty Images via @daylife
Last year I made an uncanny prediction that the New Orleans Saints will win last year's Superbowl by 14 points. Dare I make another fearless forecast for Superbowl XLV?

I'm not at ease quite frankly. By now, those of you following me would know that I'm a Steelers fan. By virtue of experience, they indeed have the upper hand in this match up. Ben Roethlisberger has already claimed 2 Superbowl rings along with majority of the starting lineup for Pittsburgh's black and gold. Aaron Rodgers and company for the Green Bay Packers are clearly the underdog as far as the this the biggest stage in NFL is concerned.

Nevertheless, both the Steelers and the Packers showed solid performance throughout the season which gives them equal footing for claiming the Lombardi trophy come Sunday night. I'm for Pittsburgh with sheer loyalty and with good reason but I can't discount Green Bay without doubting my guts.

It would be good to see Aaron Rodgers vindicated with a win -- he is a good quarterback and will certainly deserve a Superbowl victory under his belt. But overall, are the Packers ready to foil what may be the Steelers' 7th Superbowl win?

With much apprehension, I think Steelers will take their historic 7th win by 2 to 7 points over the Packers. Good luck to both teams!
