Green Bay Packers win Super Bowl XLV
The Green Bay Packers defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-25 to win Super Bowl XLV. The Packers went into halftime with a 21-10 lead after the Steelers scored a touchdown just before the end of the second quarter. It looked like the Steelers had all of the momentum heading into the second half. However, despite outscoring the Packers after the half, the Steelers couldn't make enough of a comeback to win. If they had, they would have owned the record to come back from the biggest deficit (18 points) in the Super Bowl. Packers QB Aaron Rodgers was the Super Bowl MVP after throwing for 304 yards and three touchdowns without any interceptions, but was also great all postseason, leading the sixth-seeded Packers through three rounds before taking the team to the promised land.
