Super Bowl 2011 Score: Ben Roethlisberger Throws TD And Runs The Option, 28-25 Packers

Down 11 in the fourth quarter of Super Bowl XLV, the Pittsburgh Steelers needed a score to make up for the touchdown Aaron Rodgers threw on the previous drive. They got a couple of them, with Ben Roethlisberger throwing a 25-yard over-the-shoulder touchdown to WR Mike Wallace, following it up with a two-point conversion.

If you didn’t see the play, brace yourself for the description of it.

Roethlisberger ran the option with Antwaan Randle El for the two-point conversion, with Randel El successfully running it in to cut the lead to three. That’s right — Ben Roethlisberger ran the option in the Super Bowl.

With about seven minutes left, the Green Bay Packers have a chance to either put the game away or make this one very interesting. Either way, this Super Bowl looks to be about as good as expected.
