First off, I would like to apologize for not posting the Super Bowl review sooner. I was out of town, and then I was just plain busy.
Anyway, let’s get to the review.
The Steelers’ first quarter was filled with mistakes including an interception that was returned for a touchdown. On the contrary, the Packers got off to a fast start. Scoring with a pass from Aaron Rodgers to Jordy Nelson and on a defensive touchdown in the first quarter alone, they had the Steelers in a hole early.
In the second quarter, things seemed to pick up for Pittsburgh. Hines Ward pulled down a Ben Roethlisberger pass in the end zone to cut the Packers’ lead to 11 by halftime, making it 21-10.
In the third, momentum shifted completely towards Pittsburgh. Rashard Mendenhall scored from 8 yards out, making the score 21-17. At this point it began to look familiar. Would another late Big Ben drive send the Pack’ back home giving Pittsburgh the right to say they cut the cheese? All I know is, at this point all of Wisconsin was probably shaking with nervousness.
In the fourth, a Steelers comeback fell short. With around two minutes left to go, the Steelers had the ball on 4th down with 5 yards to go. However, Big Ben couldn’t find Mike Wallace and the Pack remained on top to hoist the Lombardi trophy which is named after their great coach, Vince Lombardi. Congratulations to the Packers, and better luck next time Pittsburgh.
