However, the Steelers put the pressure on the Packers with a touchdown in the third and another midway in the fourth to cut down the Packers lead, 25-to-28. The Steelers defense forced Green Bay to settle for a field goal in the next possession to give them a chance to win the game trailing by just six points with over two minutes to go in the game. Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger’s last three passes were off-target however, turning the ball over and giving the Packers the 31-to-25 victory. Aaron Rodgers was named Super Bowl XLV completing 24-of-39 passes for 304 yards and 3 TDs.
