exactly. America will watch regardless of who is playing. I think the Steelers Packers could draw absolutely enormous ratings. Every year when the "America's Team" argument arises, those 2, along with the Pats and Cowboys typically rule the conversation
as for my prediction I am absolutely terrified of the Jets but i truly think that the Steelers will beat them. Polamalu didn't play in the first outing nor did Aaron Smith (may not this time either) and they still dominated every aspect of the game except a couple of timely big plays and the Jets pulled it out.
on the NFC side with a rivalry game like this I kind of think you throw the home field out of the window, and it comes down to QB. Even if Jay Cutler doesn't play like old Jay Cutler and puts the Bears in position to win, Aaron Rodgers is a game changer nearing the level of Manning and Roethlisberger (maybe not Brady, he's in a league of his own still)
So I'm saying Steelers-Packers and i can't honestly say who i think would win that matchup
