Let the hype begin: Your first Superbowl preview of the year

The Lombardi Trophy/Courtesy:
We might as well start now, like everyone else is. We now know who are Super Bowl teams are, and in a lot of ways, it's a pretty intriguing matchup. Two of the leagues most history laden franchises facing off in early February at Jerry World in Dallas.

Though none of our personal favorite teams are in this game, we kind of like this matchup. To quote the legendary Jim Ross "It's gonna be a Slobberknocker". Two really physical teams with two really good quarterbacks.

Though on a personal level, we feel Ben Roethlisberger is a total and complete dirt bag, he's a really good football player. Aaron Rodgers, well, he's been out of his mind most of the season and in particular in the playoffs.

However, this game will come down to defense. The Dick LeBeau coached Steeler D is legendary. Troy Polamalu, James Harrison and company will bring it. But Green Bay in their Defensive Coach Dom Capers is pretty good too.

We won't make a score prediction this early, but at least right now, we'll take Green Bay, but not by much. It may be one of the lower scoring Super Bowls we'll ever see.

Here's your game preview from JB and the boys at CBS Sports:
