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, Bob you forgot to mention that Pig Pen followed her into the women's room and had bodyguards blocking her from leaving. A real man to look up to...keep rationalizing and blaming the victim, boob. I am sure that's what the Rooney's have to do.

      Who cares? Football is nothing more than over-exposed entertainment for a bunch of fat guys sitting around on their butts drinking beer. BORING!

    Jets started off too slow. If they could have played the 1st half like they played the 2nd half, it would have been a PACKERS-JETS SUPERBOWL!!!

      And if the Bears had played in the first half like they did in the second. (Or hell, in the first three quarters like they had in the 4th), it'd be Jets-Bears. Should've, could've, would've... But didn't. Too late now.

    Steelers Baby!!!! Way to go great team and really like watching thier defense get going at times where you almost feel sorry for the other team. Almost....hehe, geez imagine if they played a game all 60 minutes with thier defense going off....this team could break some records in the SB.

    Ill mannered pittsburgh fans can cheer for a rap ist because most of them were conceived in a grimy bathroom in back of a filthy bar.

      Pigpen, your portrayal of Pittsburghers as lacking class is ironic since you're the one who appears to have no class. While Ben is most likely a rapist, it takes a lot more than angry trolls like you to bring down our city's spirit. Today was not just about him-it was about a team winning a game for a city that loves them. Supporting the team runs deep in our blood. We supported them before Ben, and we will support them long after he has retired. When Pittsburgh had nothing, we always had the boys, and we counted on that. I'm not super happy that he's still on our team, but I love seeing good people like Polamalu and Kiesel get to be a part of more local history. I'm sorry that whichever team you happen to support isn't playing in Dallas this year, but then I'm sure you'll be reminded of that when more of us come down and sit on your beaches with T shirts depicting our 7th Lombardi trophy.

      Usually you need to actually WIN the trophy before you can boast about having it. We both 6 championships and I HOPE to bring the seventh back to Green Bay, but we do have to win first! GO PACK GO!!! green & yellow green & yellow green & yellow green & yellow
