Pittsburgh Steelers Fail To Score On Second Super Bowl 2011 Drive; Green Bay Packers Defense Holds

A pass from QB Ben Roethlisberger off the tips of TE Heath Miller’s fingers spelled the end of the Pittsburgh Steelers second drive of Super Bowl XLV. Pittsburgh moved the ball slightly better than on their first drive, securing a first down, but still had to punt.

RB Rashard Mendenhall is now up to 20 yards on three carries, breaking a 15-yarder for the first down. Roethlisberger has completed two of his four passes for nine yards, finding WR Mike Wallace for four yards on this drive. The Steelers have amassed 29 yards in two drives, taking seven snaps and holding the ball for just over four minutes.

The punt sailed into Green Bay’s end zone for the touchback.
