Super Bowl 2011 Score: Hines Ward Cuts Green Bay Packers Lead, 21-10

More: Super Bowl 2012 coverage.

Deep in a 21-3 hole at Super Bowl XLV, the Pittsburgh Steelers had some serious ground to make up on the Green Bay Packers, especially with the end of the first half approaching. They responded with their biggest play of the night, a 37-yard catch-and-run by WR Antwaan Randle-El on a pass from WR Ben Roethlisberger.

The play sent Packers safety Sam Shields out of the game with a left arm injury. He’s replaced by Jarrett Bush, who has one interception. On the next play, CB Charles Woodson left with an injury. Green Bay’s secondary solution appears to be to let the linebackers do it — LB A.J. Hawk dropped a sure interception over the middle.

With that depleted pass defense, WR Hines Ward went to work. Ward caught multiple passes within the final minute, including a wide-open eight-yard touchdown pass from Roethlisberger. Ward made a great move to shake his coverage as the ball was in the air, giving the Steelers their first touchdown of the night.
