NFL FootballNFL Playoff Power Poll:  Super Bowl Edition

The Super Bowl has finally arrived and the two best teams in the NFL are in it to represent their respective conferences.  For both of these teams they come into this game having been some of the winningest franchises in Super Bowl history so this game has bit of a nostalgic effect to it.

So which team comes into the game the “best team”?  Which team should win this game?  Let’s find out as we take a look at our last power poll of the playoffs.

1.  Pittsburgh Steelers-(LW 1, 14-4) The Steelers come into the game as the underdog in this game but the Packers really haven’t faced a defense as tough and as good as the Steelers have (this season).  Can the Steelers contain the Packers high powered offense while being able to get their offense going and allowing quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and the rest of that offense to move the ball against the Packers?
It’s going to be a challenge but if anyone can do it, it’s the Steelers.

2.  Green Bay Packers-(LW 3, 13-6)-Green Bay, after having just barely made the playoffs, finds itself in a historical position and could be the first number six seed to win the Super Bowl (they are the first ever to make the Super Bowl).  They come in with one of the best offenses in the NFL and have a quarterback that is spot on almost all the time.

Couple that with one of the best defenses in the NFL and you have a team that can give the Steelers some problems.  Will everything that the Packers bring to this game be enough for them to stop the Steelers?
