Green Bay held off the Steelers 31--25 to win its fourth Super Bowl trophy and 13th NFL championship (page 32).PHOTOPhotograph by John BieverSIX-POINT PICKUP Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings celebrated a 21-yard touchdown catch in the arms of center Scott Wells during the second quarter of the Super Bowl. Jennings's TD put Green Bay ahead 21--3; he would score again in the fourth quarter on an eight-yard catch, slowing the Steelers' second-half comeback and giving the Packers a 28--17 lead.PHOTOPhotograph by John BieverSUNDAY PAPER As confetti rained on Cowboys Stadium after Super Bowl XLV, Packers linebacker Diyral Briggs held up a prescient front page.
