Congratulations to the Green Bay Packers on winning Super Bowl XLV. Heck of a run this team went on and it is remarkable considering how close they came to missing out on the playoffs altogether. Congratulations Aaron Rodgers on winning MVP of Super Bowl XLV. As I mentioned earlier in the day he has definitely earned it.
Over the next few days you will see plenty of Green Bay Packers Super Bowl merchandise. There obviously was some Steelers stuff printed already and that stuff will now get donated. Speaking of Packers Super Bowl merchandise, here is some of what is already available.
According to ESPN only one other game in NFL history has ended 31-25. The Steelers also came out on the losing end of that one way back in 1952.
Cowboys Stadium fell 766 people short of setting attendance record for Super Bowl. Them not having all seats built obviously didn’t help matters.
Ben Roethlisberger in 3 career Super Bowl appearances has thrown for 3 TDs and a whopping 5 INTs.
Here are some more nuggets from ESPN:
Only one other game in NFL history ended with a 31-25 final score. The Philadelphia Eagles defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers by that score on September 28, 1952. It was also the first NFL Championship decided by exactly six points since 1958, when the Baltimore Colts defeated the New York Giants, 23-17 in overtime.
Aaron Rodgers threw for 304 yards and three touchdowns. He’s the fourth quarterback to throw for at least 300 yards, with at least three touchdowns in a Super Bowl, joining Joe Montana, Steve Young, and Jake Delhomme.
The Packers had 13 rushing attempts, tied with the Rams (Super Bowl XXXIV) for fewest by a Super Bowl winner. The Rams and Packers also rank 1-2 in fewest yards rushing by a Super Bowl winner. The Packers 50 yards were 21 more than those Rams.
Nick Collins 37-yard interception return for a touchdown made this the third straight Super Bowl (and the seventh in the last 11) in which an interception was returned for a score. The Packers kept alive a historic streak. Teams that return an interception for a touchdown in the Super Bowl are now 11-0.
I ended up winning the NFL pick’em challenge. Thanks to all who participated. Here are the overall standings.
