Steelers, Packers book spots in Super Bowl

The Pittsburgh Steelers will meet the Green Bay Packers in next month's Super Bowl after the teams won their conference titles Sunday.

The Steelers held off the New York Jets for a 24-19 win in Sunday night's AFC Championship game. The Packers beat the Chicago Bears 21-14 to earn the NFC title earlier in the day.

Pittsburgh will be trying to get its third Super Bowl win in six years and its seventh in franchise history. Green Bay is looking for its fourth Super Bowl title, last won in 1997.

Super Bowl XLV is scheduled for February 6 in Arlington, Texas.

    Hey where is my post. My kids are going crazy over #84 Brown on the Steelers giving QB Ben a goose at the end.
    It was just his way of showing Ben what the steelers did to Sanchez all game. Just try and keep him off Ben until they get in the locker room, where any player will tell you that was tame.

    Come on we couldn't have been the only ones to see #84 goose Ben after the last kneel down. We even reviewed the video feed to make sure our eves weren't playing tricks on us. Any one else see it it was hysterical. My wife said, see that is why they always pat each other on the butt, they are silly men...and she walked around like a lady, which she is, but I caught her meaning.

    DOH!!!

    In support of hillbilly argument. Just look at Terry Bradshaw.
    Does not mean he loves the game any less.
    And yes the fix is in. The Pack is Americas team and will win by one so as to not cover. Pack 27 Steelers 26.

      Having driven on Bradshaw highway, I can tell you with certainty that Bradshaw is from northern Louisiana. His use of y'all instead of yinz definitely means he is an adopted son of western PA, not a product of it.

    @Bussman, if your Redskins would have blocked better, had a better passing game, had ball control, had more sacks, put more points on the score board, had performed better on the special teams, ...never mind, you're right, the list is way too long.

      Really? The Packers look lost? Have you watched a Packer game at all this season? And seriously, learn english and proper grammer, you make yourself and people from Pittsburg look like morons although i'm sure most of you aren't.
