Sports Illustrated's 2010 NFL preview issue hits newsstands tomorrow (featuring Mark Sanchez on the Northeast regional cover), and Peter King predicts the Steelers will beat the Packers, 33-27, to win Super Bowl XLV, according to Chris Mahr, publicist for SI.
According to King, "The Steelers' MVP might be Roger Goodell. At press time it appeared likely the commissioner would reduce Roethlisberger's suspension from six games to four for good behavior-Roethlisberger spent the summer kissing babies and signing every autograph within miles at training camp. Byron Leftwich and/or Dennis Dixon should be able to navigate a friendly first-month schedule (Atlanta, at Tennessee, at Tampa Bay, Baltimore) and hand Roethlisberger a 3-1 team when he returns. A six-game suspension? That would be trouble, obviously."
