The one thing about the Pittsburgh Steelers, they know how to get to the Super Bowl.

For the third time in six years, the Steelers are going to the NFL’s title game to play this time around, the Green Bay Packers.

The Steelers beat the New York Jets 24-19 to play in Super Bowl XLV on February 6, 2011.

Pittsburgh turned back the Jets by stopping them on a key goal line stand.

The 14-4 Steelers dominated the game in the first half going up 24-3 with Rashard Mendenhall rushing for 95 of his 121 yards in the first two quarters.

Pittsburgh is in its eighth Super Bowl and has won the most titles with 6.

The Jets trying to get the Super Bowl since the days of Broadway Joe Namath 42 years ago, got off on a bad start against a team who is hard to comeback against.

The New York Jets finished the season at 13-6 and failed for the fourth time in the AFC title game to advance to the Super Bowl.

The Steelers counted out by everybody when Ben Roethlisberger was suspended by the NFL for the first four games, did not wither and still won their division and the AFC Championship.

Aaron Rodgers is making Green Bay fans forget about that traitor Brett Favre with each and every win on the football field. More now than ever since the Packers are heading to the Super Bowl.

Rodgers ran for a touchdown and made a touchdown-saving tackle in leading Green Bay to face the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Packers played an all-around game of offense, defense, shutting down Bears punt returner Devin Hester.

In the 182nd meeting in the series, Green Bay won 21-14 over the Chicago Bears.

The Packers are 13-6 and had to win all of its playoff games away from Lambeau Field, at Philadelphia, at Atlanta and now Chicago to get to the Big Game in Dallas.

Rodgers’ counterpart at QB, Jay Cutler, left the game due a knee injury in the third period, but he not performing well anyway.

His backup Todd Collins was inefficient as well.

The best QB for the Bears was third-stringer Caleb Hanie and he added life to the team.

Hanie rallied the Bears for a touchdown to cut the lead to 14-7 after Chester Taylor’s 1-yard run early in the fourth quarter.

But Hanie also gave the Packers a chance to add the winning touchdown by throwing a pass to Packers defensive lineman B.J. Raji, who rumbled 18 yards for a TD and a 21-7 lead.

Hanie then threw a touchdown to Earl Bennett of 35-yards and it was 21-14 with 4:43 to go.  But the Bears chance to tie ended when Hanie threw another interception by Sam Shields and that was the game.

Rodgers threw 244 yards with two interceptions and he led The Pack to a quick 14-0 lead.
