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.

    Well let me see here-rapistberger is a pa hick who plays for a hillbilly southeastern pa team, poor pittsburgh hicks, thats all they have pride in? A rapist who is overpaid, Give me a break.

      There are a few flaws in your logic, Mauser.

      Firstly, Ben Rothlisberger hails from a small town in Ohio, Findlay, if I recall correctly. So, if he is indeed a 'hick' as you claim, he'd be an Ohioan hick, not a Pennsylvanian hick. Secondly, he doesn't play for a "hillbilly southeastern PA team" either. You see, the Steelers are a Pittsburgh based team, and anyone who can read a map can see that Pittsburgh is on the western side of Pennsylvania, not the eastern. 😛

      And, no, Ben Rothlisberger is not the only thing Pittsburghers have pride in. Pittsburgh is well known for many things that do not involve the Steelers or Ben Rothlisberger. However, as this is an article about NFL Football, the Super Bowl, and the participants, the Packers and the Steelers, it is to be expected that it is the Steelers part of Pittsburgh that will be trumpeted throughout these comments.

      I guess you don't know much about the Burgh if you think they are hillbillies and in South West PA...maybe you need to go back to school and learn your geography...

    Well the Steelers will only win if their friends(referees) show up and blow the game for the packers like they do every other game. The NFL is the biggest joke in the world. Other then our government.

    Why come no is saying what the real issue is? This game is already made to be the season. Nice try "left" We know the issue with the game isn't about what can be if we voted for the times. Touchdown? I don't think so! WAKE UP!
