The Packers appeared to be in command at halftime, but as we begin the fourth quarter of Super Bowl XLV, the Steelers are making a game of it.
An eight-yard touchdown run by Rashard Mendenhall narrowed the deficit to 21-17, and the Steelers aren’t going down without a fight.
Statistically, the Steelers have been the better team in most aspects of the game: Pittsburgh has 15 first downs to Green Bay’s nine, and 296 yards to Green Bay’s 210.
But turnovers have hurt the Steelers: Ben Roethlisberger has two interceptions to none for Aaron Rodgers, and Mendenhall started the fourth quarter with a fumble. Now we’ll see if the Steelers can overcome those mistakes, or if it’s the Packers bringing home the Vince Lombardi Trophy.
