Super Bowl XLV: Packers Go O-Fer On Second Half Third Downs So Far

Another third down in the third quarter of Super Bowl XLV, another Packers failure.

Aaron Rodgers found Brett Swain across the first down marker with less than a minute left in the third quarter, but Swain couldn't hang onto the ball while being hit, and the play was ruled an incomplete pass on the field.

And to make matters worse, Mike McCarthy challenged the play and lost, costing the Packers a timeout.

In the third quarter, the Packers have gone 0-for-4 on third down, and Rodgers has thrown three incompletions and been sacked.
