It has been a frigid and icy Super Bowl week in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex, but for the most part, no event were really affected. Sure, some parties got canceled, but that could also be to low projected attendance. Overall, with all the bad weather, everything has gone off without much of a problem. Whether you attended the NFL experience, or attended a Super Bowl party, it is now time to focus on the task at hand. The game is coming up and we now have to figure out who is going to win.
Now that you have partaken in the fun and debauchery of everything that goes with the Super Bowl, it almost game day. Steelers fans should be very happy to hear that Ben Rapeless…Sorry, Roethlisberger was kept off of the police scanner this week. Meanwhile it is just business as usual for the rest of the players involved. With the frigid temps this week, both teams have take practices indoors, which is probably good since the game will be played with the roof closed.
This should be an entertaining game, hopefully will be a close game from start to finish. But this game could come down to defense and mistakes. Which team will make the most mistakes and at what time could be critical. While both teams are pretty sound from top to bottom, it is a known fact that both Roethlisberger and Rogers are mistake prone at big moments. This will almost be like watching a wild west duel, who will stay spot on and who will open the door from the other one.
I think one of the glaring things that will make a difference is at the center position for the Steelers, if Pouncey is unable to play, then you have a young center who will be starting his very first game in the Super Bowl. That alone makes the Packers a favored team, because that is one weakness that attacked over and over again. Other than that one blaring hole in the Steelers line, everything else is made pretty even. But I think Roethlisberger will make that one mistake that can cost his team victory, The Packers have a strong defense and can exploit him to a point where he will force a play that isn’t there.
I am going to say that the Packers will win a close game, which will keep everything during the football action entertaining. Just please locate your mute button for the pre-game and halftime entertainment, or better yet, skip halftime and go watch the puppy bowl on animal planet.
