We have another tough decision. Should I go with the Pittsburgh Steelers defense anchored by Troy Polamalu and James Harrison or Green Bay‘s, led by Clay Matthews and Charles Woodson?

Both defenses are capable of making big plays. I prefer Pittsburgh slightly because many of their key players have played on this stage before. That experience will play a role in determining the outcome of the game.
