In the third quarter of Super Bowl XLV, the Pittsburgh Steelers followed another Green Bay Packers three-and-out with a mostly successful drive that lost steam at the end. Shaun Suisham attempted a long field goal that sailed wide left, his first miss of the game.
Pittsburgh’s losses on the offensive line may be taking a toll. Not only did Roethlisberger bobble a snap from backup center Doug Legursky, but the Packers are starting to get serious pressure into the Pittsburgh pocket. LB Clay Matthews nearly batted a Roethlisberger pass to himself, and on the next play LB Frank Zombo brought down the passer to force a field goal.
WR Hines Ward was again a big part of the drive, converting one second down with a 15-yard catch over the middle that involved a few more moves than you’d expect from a player his age.
