Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger Throws Second Super Bowl 2011 Interception, To Jarrett Bush

The Pittsburgh Steelers defense forced a Green Bay Packers punt, setting up an opportunity for the Steelers to draw within a score. Pittsburgh moved the ball well, but QB Ben Roethlisberger threw his second pick to end the drive. It wasn’t entirely his fault — he threw the ball into traffic, but it bounced between various players before Jarrett Bush came up with it.

Sticking with the running game, the Steelers gave RB Rashard Mendenhall his eighth carry of the night, but a holding call on TE Heath Miller set Pittsburgh’s drive back. Miller hasn’t had a game Steelers fans will treasure, so far at least, with a pass bouncing off his fingertips and ending a first quarter drive.

RB Mewelde Moore got his first carry of the game, forcing his way up the middle for seven yards and a first down.

The Steelers game plan now seems to be keeping the ball in the center of the field as much as possible, neutralizing their speed disadvantage somewhat. Roethlisberger completed a number of passes straight down the middle on the drive, including a 13-yard rope to Antwaan Randle-El.
