    Super Bowl Pick
    Pittsburgh over Arizona

    Defense wins Championships.  Arizona’s D has looked great during this postseason, but Pittsburgh has looked great all year.  They have played one of the toughest schedules in NFL history and have passed the majority of the tests.  Pittsburgh will take home another Super Bowl title. 

    Pittsburgh:  24
    Arizona:  20

    Now that my head has spoken, I will mention that my heart is pulling for Arizona.
