Packers cling to 28-25 lead in 4th quarter
Question of the Day
ARLINGTON, TEXAS (AP) - The Green Bay Packers were holding a 28-25 lead, and had the ball, midway through the fourth quarter of the Super Bowl.
Greg Jennings caught his second touchdown pass from Aaron Rodgers early in the fourth quarter, their first score since Jennings' 21-yard TD had put Green Bay up 21-3 before halftime. It was Rodgers' third TD.
After Jennings' second score, the Steelers responded with Ben Roethlisberger throwing a 25-yard TD pass to Mike Wallace with 7:34 left. Pittsburgh then went for two, and Antwaan Randle El took a pitch into the end zone to cut the gap to a field goal.
Green Bay is going for its fourth Super Bowl championship. It would be the Packers' first since 1997 when Brett Favre was their quarterback. They won the first two Super Bowls played under coach Vince Lombardi.
Pittsburgh is trying for its third title in six seasons, and seventh overall.
Roethlisberger threw two interceptions in the first half that led to Green Bay touchdowns. But Big Ben threw an 8-yard TD pass to Hines Ward with 39 seconds left before halftime to get Pittsburgh within 21-10.
After Green Bay started the second half with three penalties and a punt, Pittsburgh went 50 yards in five plays. Rashard Mendenhall started that drive with a 17-yard run and capped it by bulling into the end zone from 8 yards out to get within 21-17.
The Steelers had a chance to get closer. But Shaun Suisham was wide left on a 52-yard field goal attempt late in the third quarter. That came a play after Frank Zombo sacked Roethlisberger.
Roethlisberger's first touchdown pass came just before the 32-minute halftime break highlighted by the Black Eyed Peas performing. R&B star Usher and former Guns `N Roses guitarist Slash made special appearances as part of the set.
