Super Bowl XLV: Aaron Rodgers, Packers Convert Desmond Bishop Fumble Recovery

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.

To continue following this developing game from a Cal perspective (for all the Aaron Rodgers fans), head over to the California Golden Blogs open thread.
