Packers Super Prediction
I Think You'll Like It
Keys When the Packers Have the Ball: Blitz pickups from the running backs to keep Aaron Rodgers upright. Because if he has time to throw, he will light up the Steelers back end on the fast track of Cowboys Stadium.
The running game needs to be more about attempts than yards, just to keep the Steelers honest.
Keys When the Steelers Have the Ball: Bring Big Ben Roethlisberger down. When the Packers lost to the Steelers 37-36 last year, the Pack sacked Big Ben 5 times. But they could have sacked him 5 more. Don't bite on his pump fakes, and no shoulder tackles. Big Ben is a playmaker, a big dude who makes guys miss. And the Packers can't let Rashard Mendenhall and the Pittsburgh offense keep the ball away and win the time of possession battle.
Final Score: Packers 27, Steelers 24. I really can't see this being a blowout. And despite the Packers lack of experience in the big game, they are the hotter team.
Remember, I blogged after the Packers-Vikings game that this team had "Super" potential. I think they prove it on Sunday.
