The first quarter looked more favorable for Green Bay, the first touchdown by Nelson from a pass by Aaron Rodgers when the clock was on the 3 minute and 51 seconds mark put the score 7-0 in favor of the Packers. During the 3:34 minute, the Packers scored their second touchdown by Collins. In the second quarter Suisham gave the Steelers 3 points with a field goal kick from the 33 yard line.
But Green Bay was not over with their punishment to the Steelers and this time Aaron Rodgers passed it to Greg Jennings, scoring their third touchdown on the 2:31 mark in the second quarter. The Steelers were not going to close the first half of the game with that sour taste of defeat in their mouth so on the minute 0:39 in the second quarter we saw a pass from Big Ben to Hines Ward.
The second half started after the Black Eyed Peas performed some of their best songs with the special appearances of Slash and Usher and now it was the tough guys who were meant to give their fans what they came for, the Packers were winning 21-10. The Steelers, who had Polamanu on the field now and they were not going to give up so easily. So it was on the 10:22 minute mark in the third quarter Medenhall scored their second touchdown of the night putting the score 21-17, but the Packers had Jennings scoring their fourth touchdown with a pass from Rodgers in the third quarter. They were still celebrating when the Steelers scored another touchdown (pass from Big Ben to Walllace) putting things very dangerous for the Packers, the score was now 28-25, in the fourth quarter. It was the Packers’ Curtis who added his team’s final three points with a field goal. The final score was 31-25 with Green Bay winning the Super Bowl!
