The Pittsburgh Steelers and the Green Bay Packers Get It Done!

A BIG CONGRATS to the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Green Bay Packers who are going to Super Bowl XLV as the AFC and NFC champions.

So who am I picking? This is a tough one, indeed.

As we all know, the road to the Super Bowl is a rough and tough journey and nobody had it rougher than the Packers. As the No. 6 seed they were forced to play all three playoff games on the road. And they won all 3 games on the road. Although I'm not taking anything away from the dangerous Steelers, they did have a bye and the luxury of playing two home games. So it's safe to say, their road was a lot smoother.

What does it all mean?

It means, I'm going with the road warriors, รก la, the 2008 New York Giants and the 2006 Steelers. Winning three road games elevated those two teams confidence to an invincibility-like level. It may just happen again.

Oh and I must say, CONGRATS to both No. 6 seeds (Packers and New York Jets) for almost pulling off the unthinkable. The Packers won all three road games and the Jets won 2 out of 3 on the road. A 5-1 record so far for the No. 6 seeds. Not bad.
