The Green Bay Packers have given themselves some breathing room and regained momentum in Super Bowl XLV after an awful third quarter. Former Cal great Desmond Bishop scooped up a Rashard Mendenhall and Aaron Rodgers connected with Greg Jennings for Rodgers third TD pass of the game. The connection gives the Packers a 28-17 lead early in the fourth quarter.
The Packers struggled mightily in the third quarter, but the Steelers could not take full advantage of the GB struggles. Instead, a third Steelers turnover has led to 21 Packers points. When a team shoots itself in the foot this frequently, they just can’t expect to win. Or at the very least, they’re going to have put in a whole more work. There is a lot of time left in the fourth quarter, but the Steelers are running out of time.
