Brainteaser: NFL Football Names Quiz

Super Bowl XLIII is played later this evening with the first time NFC winner Arizona Cardinals going against the AFC Pittsburgh Steelers who are looking at a sixth Lombarbi Trophy.

I've been consumed with national politics for the past twelve months and have followed little more than the Atlanta Falcons surprising resurgence this past season. I was shocked when the Cardinals beat the Falcons in the Wild Card game and even more shocked that they even made it to the big dance (for the first time in their long history). And it seems like the Steelers are in the Super Bowl ever four or five years!

So instead of attempting to pick a winner, plezWorld offers up the following NFL Football Names Brainteaser.
