SUPER BOWL XLV – PACKERS DEFEAT STEELERS
Mon, 07 Feb 2011 02:04 PM EST

It was a vibrant day as the Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers met at the Cowboys Stadium in Dallas, Texas for Super Bowl Sunday. The Steelers plowed through the Baltimore Ravens and the New York Jets after winning the AFC title to get to Dallas, and were awaiting Big Ben’s command coming into the game. The Packers only made the playoffs via the Wild Card, and intrigued the nation by passing up the Eagles, Falcons and Bears on the way to Super Bowl XLV. In the end, it was Aaron Rodgers and the Packers that overcame injury and doubt to take this year’s trophy and fame. Odds.

By Rodger’s first 29-yard touchdown pass to Jordy Nelson on an 80-yard drive, it was obvious that Green Bay had found its rhythm. The Steelers were quick to respond, and ran 50 yards on the kickoff return only to draw a flag on the play. Given the loss of yards that resulted, Roethlisberger was forced to throw it as close as he could to the end zone. Unfortunately, pressure at the goal line resulted in an interception by Nick Collins, who ran it all the way for another score. After a 33-yard field goal from Shaun Suisham and a bit of stalled play, Roethlisberger surprised the crowd with yet another interception. Bolstering their enthusiasm, the Packers continued with another scoring drive finished off by a 21-yard pass to Greg Jennings. Pittsburgh’s first TD with a few minutes left in the second quarter moved the score to 21-10 going into halftime. Scores.

Roethlisberger started the third with more focus, which resulted in a TD on their first possession to cut the Packers’ lead to 21-17. Trying their best to avoid another pick, the Steelers relied mostly on running plays to get them through, but come the end of the third, neither team had scored. After losing the ball to a fumble in the opening minute of the fourth, the Packers scored on their first possession of the quarter with an 8-yard pass from Rodgers to Jennings. However, Pittsburgh then brought the score enticingly close when they got the ball back in their hands for a TD with a much-needed 2-point conversion. With 7:34 left, the score stood at 28-25. Following a field goal from Green Bay, the Steelers were presented with the challenge of covering 80 yards in 2 minutes. The team gave it their best shot, but Big Ben’s passes were simply inaccurate. With that, the Green Bay Packers held on to win the game 31-25 and become this year’s Super Bowl Champions. Las Vegas odds.
