Super Bowl XLV: Packers Score On Greg Jennings Touchdown As Fourth Quarter Brings Third Down Conversions

After the Packers forced a Rashard Mendenhall fumble on the first play of the fourth quarter of Super Bowl XLV, their offense went back to work after a miserable third period. And things worked again.

Aaron Rodgers used his feet to set up one third down conversion, on a tough catch by James Jones; Jordy Nelson got another by racing across the middle of the field after snaring a Rodgers laser. And then Rodgers went up top to Greg Jennings down near the goal line for an eight-yard touchdown that gave the Packers a double-digit lead once again. Mason Crosby hit the extra point to make the score 28-17 in Green Bay's favor.

Rodgers has now thrown for 240 yards and three touchdowns. If you're looking for a Super Bowl XLV MVP in the case of a Packers win, you probably won't have to look past Rodgers.
