Each day we'll post the prediction of a PFW editor for Super Bowl XLV. PFW associate editor Michael Blunda's prediction is the third of 10.

Packers 24, Steelers 20

Can anybody stop the red-hot run that the Packers are on? If any team can do so, it's the Steelers, the league's No. 1 scoring defense. That should make Super Bowl XLV an extremely intriguing one. But in the end, I think it's not Green Bay's offense but the defense that will be the reason the Packers hoist the Lombardi Trophy. Pittsburgh's porous offensive line will have all kinds of trouble stopping Clay Matthews and Co., especially if C Maurkice Pouncey can't go. That will make it a long night for Ben Roethlisberger, who will take a constant pounding and be forced into multiple turnovers. As long as Green Bay can contain Rashard Mendenhall, I think Aaron Rodgers will be able to do enough with his loaded receiving corps to lead the Packers to a narrow victory in what should be a tremendous contest.
