Super Bowl 45

Feb. 6, 2011

At Arlington, Texas-103,219

Pittsburgh .0.10.7..8-25

Green Bay 14..7.0.10-31

A week of wintry weather - snow, wind, ice - wouldn't bother the Steelers or Packers, who are used to such things at home in February.

But this Super Bowl was in Dallas, which was crippled for much of the week preceding the game.

MVP Aaron Rodgers threw three touchdown passes and Nick Collins returned an interception for another score, leading the Packers to their fourth Super Bowl title.

The Steelers trailed 21-3 before halftime. Ben Roethlisberger got them within 28-25 midway through the fourth quarter with a touchdown pass and a nifty 2-point conversion. The Packers answered with a 23-yard field goal by Mason Crosby with 2:07 left, giving Roethlisberger one last chance.

Needing to go 87 yards in 1:59 with one timeout left, Roethlisberger couldn't make it across midfield.

The NFL also had to deal with not having seats for fans with tickets to the game in the Cowboys' home stadium.
