Super Bowl Prediction

I’ll make this simple, since I have pretty much been staking my claim from the start of the playoffs. The Packers will win this one.
Let’s look at what happened in the Conference Championship:
The Steelers looked good against the Jets, but I wonder where the Jets defense was in the first quarter, which really set the tone for the rest of the game. The Steelers showed that they have a decent offense to supplement the great defense.
The Packers dominated the Bears most of the game, but many might worry that the Bears were able to stay in the game despite losing Jay Cutler. It might also be worth noting that the Bears had to go with their 3rd string QB! Bottom line is I think the Packers started to lie down a bit and let the Bears look a little better than they should have towards the end. I still love the Packers as a whole with the most dynamic offense and defense combo punch.
The Super Bowl should be a pretty good game with two high power defenses playing physical football. I expect though for the offenses to have opportunities as the defenses keep the game close. The difference here for me is Green Bay’s offense. I just like them better. Big Ben is known to do well in high-profile games, but I still say Aaron Rodgers has more weapons at his disposal and if either of these defense can be beat, it’s in the air.
24-17 Green Bay
