Super Bowl XLV: Packers Forced To Punt After Another Third Down Incompletion

Finally, the Packers had a chance to made some headway against the rugged Pittsburgh defense in the second half of Super Bowl XLV. But another third down stand forced another Green Bay punt.

The Packers had just crossed midfield when Aaron Rodgers was forced to throw on third down, and zipped a laser just past the outstretched hands of Brett Swain.

Troy Aikman explained that Rodgers made the right throw, but Swain failed to separate from the coverage.

Oh, and Swain's only playing because Donald Driver is out for the rest of this game with an unknown injury. Good times for Packers fans!
