Take your pick: Steelers or Packers?
By James Walker
Everyone knew this was coming. We have the final "Take your pick" of the season in the AFC North blog, and it involves the last two teams standing.
Who will win Sunday's Super Bowl XLV matchup between the Pittsburgh Steelers (14-4) and Green Bay Packers (13-6)? Take your pick.
Can the Steelers win an NFL-best seventh Super Bowl title? Pittsburgh has tons of championship experience, which includes quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who is 10-2 in the playoffs and undefeated in two Super Bowls. Will experience prevail for the Steelers?
Or will the Packers continue their hot streak through the playoffs? Green Bay has won on the road against three division champions and is favored to beat Pittsburgh, which captured the AFC North. Is this the year for the Packers and quarterback Aaron Rodgers?
So predict Super Bowl XLV and provide a score and MVP while you're at it. You can share your thoughts below or to our division inbox and AFC North Twitter page. We will run the best responses throughout the week.
