Super Bowl 2011 Final Score: Green Bay Packers Outlast Pittsburgh Steelers, 31-25

Down by six with two minutes to go in Super Bowl XLV, the Pittsburgh Steelers had a chance to put together one of the best drives in NFL history. A penalty on the kickoff return put the Steelers in a hole, with a long way between them and the end zone.

QB Ben Roethlisberger started it off with a first down completion, immediately ordering the team into hurry-up mode. With about a minute to go, he overthrew WR Mike Wallace deep down the field. On fourth down, the Steelers backfield cleared out, Roethlisberger threw a very catchable pass to Wallace, which the receiver dropped after what appeared to be contact with CB Tramon Williams.

The Green Bay Packers have just locked up their fourth Super Bowl title. QB Aaron Rodgers is an all-but lock to win the MVP award, throwing for over 300 yards and three touchdowns and turning the ball over zero times. WR Jordy Nelson turned in 140 yards and a score, Greg Jennings added two touchdowns, and Clay Matthews forced a fumble and nearly picked off another pass, but this is Rodgers’ team, and this was Rodgers’ game.

Congratulations to the Green Bay Packers.
