On one hand, you have the Jets' quarterback Mark Sanchez--who, in two seasons in the league, has four playoff wins--and on the other, Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers, who recorded his first playoff win two weeks ago at Philadelphia. Rodgers is thought of as among the best quarterbacks in the league, while Sanchez, despite being much less statistically proficient as Rodgers, has a big edge on his Green Bay counterpart in playoff experience.
The two best rushing offenses in the league would collide in this match-up, with an average of 176 and 144.5 yards per game on the ground, respectively, and such names as Shon Greene, LaDainian Tomlinson, Matt Forte and Chester Taylor doing battle at JerryWorld.
Two great franchises, both in the top five in the league in terms of total defense. The Steelers aren’t as dynamic on offense as are the Packers, but, as we’ve seen time and time again, Ben Roethlisberger and the veteran Steelers know how to win when it counts.
A battle of the two best rushing defenses in the league, allowing just 34 and 35 yards per game in the regular season, respectively. Chicago’s Lovie Smith and Pittsburgh’s Mike Tomlin each own a Super Bowl ring, making this the only potential coaching match-up of Super Bowl-winning head coaches.
So... Which match-up do you want coming to the Metroplex next month?
