It will be the Pack and Steelers heading to do battle in Dallas in two weeks time.

Both teams found just enough points to capture their respective conference titles as the National Football League determined the two teams heading to the Super Bowl in Big D.

For the third time in six seasons, Terrible Towels will twirl at the Super Bowl. The Steelers silenced Rex Ryan’s wild bunch with a fumble return for a touchdown and a goal-line stand in a 24-19 victory for the AFC championship Sunday. They will face Green Bay in Dallas in two weeks.

In Chicago, Aaron Rodgers came of age after leading the Packers to a 21-14 victory over the Bears in the NFC Championship game.

Rodgers played well enough to keep the Bears off balance all afternoon, Green Bay punter Tim Masthay kept Devin Hester under wraps and the Packers’ superb defence took care of the rest in knocking the Bears out of the playoffs.

The Super Bowl is set to kick off at approximately 3 p.m. Sunday, February 6.
