Super Bowl XLV - Pittsburgh Steelers and Green Bay Packers Will Head To Dallas

A historic Super Bowl will have a historic matchup.  The Green Bay Packers won the first two Super Bowls, then returned and won Super Bowl XXXI.  The trophy is named after legendary Packers head coach Vince Lombardi.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have won 6 Super Bowls, including two of the last five.  Their 8 appearances in the Super Bowl ties the Dallas Cowboys for most ever - they already have more Super Bowl wins than any team in history.

The two teams played last season in what may have been the game of the 2009 NFL Season.   Pittsburgh scored on the final play of the game to beat the Packers 37-36 in a game that saw the teams combine for 73 points and 973 yards.  Ben Roethlisberger threw for over 500 yards himself.

Neither of the teams that remain might be one of your favorites, but it is hard to deny that the two teams that remain are the two best teams in football this season.
