Super Bowl XLV Fantasy Football QB Rankings

Super Bowl XLV is a matchup of two of the best quarterbacks in football. Both have strong arms and can make plays with their feet. Aaron Rodgers has been a statistical force the past few years while Big Ben is looking to add a third ring.

With all the attention Aaron Rodgers had in the original Brett Favre drama, he should not be fazed by the extra attention that comes with playing in the Super Bowl.

Being a multiple Super Bowl winner, not to mention the off-the-field issues Ben Roethlisberger has had in recent years, you know that he won’t shy away from a little extra media coverage.

Since the circumstances shouldn’t play a major role in determining which quarterback will have the better performance, we’ll have to look to the field. While Rodgers has been the statistical superior player, he’ll also be facing a tougher defense.

Unfortunately for Pittsburgh, there strength is stopping the run. When Rodgers faced Pittsburgh in 2009, he threw for 383 yards and three touchdowns while adding 22 yards and another score on the ground.

Big Ben topped him though with 503 yards and three touchdown passes as the Steelers edged the Packers 37-36.

With the Lombardi Trophy at stake I don’t expect anything like that in Super Bowl 45, but I do expect the offenses to move the football and put some points on the board.

It’s really close, but I do give one quarterback a slight edge in this one. While I’m taking Pittsburgh to win the game, I think Aaron Rodgers walks away with better numbers.
