Super Bowl XLV, Packers VS. Steelers: Game Day!

Super Bowl 45 between the Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers kicks off at 5:30 CST (6:30 EST) and as always, SB Nation Chicago will be here bringing you live game updates, and all the news from Dallas. This looks to be a great match-up between two teams with great defenses and plenty of fire power on offense. One of the keys to this game will be the effectiveness of the run. The Packers James Starks had a great day against the Atlanta Falcons in the Divisional round, but was mostly shut down by the Chicago Bears. Pittsburgh's Rashard Mendenhall, gave the Steelers the upper hand early in the AFC Championship game against the New York Jets; if he can repeat that performance today, it will open up the Steelers offense for the pass, which makes them very dangerous.   

Today is the day the most reported sporting event of the year, finally takes place. Of course in between, they'll be fireworks, montages, players' moms, fireworks, 'special' commercials, and the Black Eyed Peas. It's the NFL's Big Party, and we're all hoping it won't be the only football game played in 2011.

Keep checking back here, and enjoy Super Bowl Sunday!
