Statistically Speaking

Super Bowl XLV is around the corner, and football fans couldn’t be more excited. The people of Pittsburgh in particular are showing their Steelers pride by donning anything black and yellow. The Steelers, despite such unbounded support, will be fighting a tough game against the Green Bay Packers come Sunday. It’s difficult to predict which team will take the title of Super Bowl champions; let’s see how these two teams stack up by looking at their 2010 regular-season statistics:

1,089: tackles made by the Steelers

1,924: rushed yards by the Steelers

272.2: Packers' average rushing yards per game

43.9: Packers' gross punting average
