Ben Roethlisberger Suffers Knee Injury; Steelers Score Field Goal

The Pittsburgh Steelers followed Green Bay Packers safety Nick Collins’ pick six by finally getting a drive going, for the first time in Super Bowl XLV. The 13-play, 49-yard drive took up over seven minutes, but only resulted in a 33-yard Shaun Suisham field goal after Green Bay’s secondary stopped WR Mike Wallace short of a red zone first down.

Ben Roethlisberger took a shot (from nobody!) to his left knee near midfield, but stayed in to convert a third and nine with a long scramble to the sideline. Not sure what happened, but Roethlisberger curled up on the ground after an awkward throw. His knee is probably OK.

Green Bay’s defense looks very fast, a few big plays aside. Minus WR Bryant McFadden, the Steelers don’t have an overwhelming assortment of fast weaponry.
