Each day we'll post the prediction of a PFW editor for Super Bowl XLV. PFW publisher/editor Hub Arkush's prediction is the last of 10.

Packers 27, Steelers 24

Rodgers and Roethlisberger, Matthews and Harrison, Woodson and Polamalu, Capers and LeBeau, etc. — the similarities are striking. Normally in a situation like this I'd lean toward experience, which would favor the Steelers, but to the extent either team has weaknesses, I suspect Pittsburgh's are a bit more obvious. While not as strong as Big Ben, A-Rod is the one QB who can move in the pocket and still find receivers or create big plays with his feet as well as Roethlisberger. And if the Steelers are unable to put Rodgers on the ground, the Packers' outstanding group of wideouts will exploit the Steelers' secondary. On the other hand if Pittsburgh runs like it did against the Jets, the Packers' defense will wear down in the second half. I'm guessing a late turnover goes Green Bay's way and the Pack wins this one.
