VIDEO: Nick Collins Returns Ben Roethlisberger Interception For Touchdown

After the Green Bay Packers scored the first points of Super Bowl XLV on a long pass from QB Aaron Rodgers to WR Jordy Nelson, Pittsburgh Steelers KR Antonio Brown brought back his second big kick return of the day. But it was called back by a penalty, erasing a 44-yard head start for Pittsburgh.

The Steelers tried to get it back all at once, with QB Ben Roethlisberger bombing deep to WR Mike Wallace, but Packers safety Nick Collins made a break on the ball, picking it off. He then made one of the best touchdown returns in NFL history, vaulting over a bundle of Packers at the goal line to put the Packers up by two touchdowns early.

Neither team was supposed to have a major special teams advantage, especially since they’re both depleted by injuries to one degree, but the Steelers at least have the kick returns thing going for them.
