2011 Super Bowl: Packers Lead Steelers 21-10 At Halftime

Super Bowl XLV is now half in the books. The Packers lead the Steelers by a 21-10 margin at the half and will receive the ball to open the second half.

The Packers converted two Ben Roethlisberger interceptions into touchdowns, one of them being a pick-six. After a Aaron Rodgers-to-Jordy Nelson touchdown, Roethlisberger threw an interception to Nick Collins, who returned it 37 yards for a touchdown.

Roethlisberger threw an interception late in the second quarter, when Jarrett Bush intercepted the errant pass. Rodgers hooked up with Greg Jennings four plays later, to extend Green Bay's lead to 21-3.

Roethlisberger and the Steelers marched downfield, though, hooking up with Hines Ward for a touchdown, capping off a seven play, 77 yard drive while cutting the Packers' lead to 21-10.

The Super Bowl halftime show, with the Black Eyed Peas, Usher and Slash waits in the wings for us.
