Pack gets 3 TDs on 2 turnovers, leads 21-3 2d qtr.
ARLINGTON, TEXAS (AP) - Aaron Rodgers has thrown two touchdowns and Ben Roethlisberger has thrown two interceptions, and the Green Bay Packers have a 21-3 lead over Pittsburgh late in the first half of the Super Bowl.
Nick Collins returned the other interception thrown by Roethlisberger 37 yards for a touchdown.
Green Bay is trying to its fourth Super Bowl championship. The Steelers are going for the third in six seasons and seventh overall.
Aaron Rodgers threw a 29-yard touchdown pass to Jordy Nelson with 3:44 left in the first quarter. That drive ended with a perfectly placed pass to Nelson, who had made a leaping catch with defender William Gay running with him down the right sideline near the end zone.
The Packers then kicked off and the Steelers started at their own 7 after a holding penalty on the return. On the first snap after that, Roethlisberger was under pressure when he threw. The ball floated and Collins intercepted it.
The championship game Sunday put the focus back on the field after a long, cold week in North Texas that included two wintry storms with snow and ice. There were no weather woes inside $1.2 billion Cowboys Stadium, and it wasn’t bad outside either on game day.
The 45th Super Bowl, the NFL’s signature event, pitted two of its storied franchises and capped a season that saw the league reach new heights of popularity despite a string of off-field incidents and that potential lockout with the current collective bargaining agreement expiring next month.
