Pittsburgh Steelers Come Up Short, Still Trail Super Bowl 2011 To Green Bay Packers

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.
