SuperBowl XLIII Pre-Game Information – Odds of Pittsburg Steelers Over Arizona Cardinals – History of AFC and NFC

SuperBowl XLIII

(Best Syndication News) Although Las Vegas is picking the Steelers to win Superbowl 43, most Americans now favor the Cardinals. But odds makers don’t pick a team because they are the underdog darling. They look at statistics, teams, before handicapping the game.

Odds and Favorites

Pittsburg will still need to perform to win. They need to rush the passer on defense and run the ball on offense. During the regular season they were able to do that and they are likely to do that on Superbowl Sunday. If the Steelers can not put the pressure on Cardinal quarterback Kurt Warner, expect the QB to get comfortable and start completing passes. Warner is known for sitting in his pocket and finding the gaps in coverage.

Superbowl XLIII

The Steelers will not be able to hold the Cardinals all day. Like every game, there will be some mistakes made. Warner could start nailing Larry Fitzgerald and Anquan Kenmile Boldin. There is a reason Boldin was named NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2003.

The last two weeks have given the Steelers a slight advantage. They have had time to study the Cardinal’s defenses. The Cardinals may have lost some momentum while on the break from play. The Steelers are favored to win by 6.5 points.

A Little History

But the fans still love the Cardinals. It might have something to do with their underdog status, or it could be the fact that they have never won a Super Bowl (the team did win the Championship in 1947 while in Chicago, and there was a controversial win in 1925). The Steelers have won five Superbowl titles. Founded in 1933, the Steelers are the oldest AFC franchise and are tied with two other teams for the most Superbowl wins.

The Cardinals are the oldest continuously running pro football team. First established in 1898, they became a charter member of the NFL. The team merged for one year with the AFC Steelers but then moved to Saint Louis in 1960. In 1987 the team moved to Arizona.

The first Sueprbowl was played January 15, 1967. The AFC and NFC later merged in 1970. Today the Superbowl is the most watched sporting event of the year.
