2011 Super Bowl: Packers Punt On First Possession Of Second Half

Things aren't going so well for the Packers to begin the second half of Super Bowl XLV.

First, Green Bay receives news that Charles Woodson will not return to the game. Next, the Packers go three-and-out as James Jones dropped a third down pass which would have led to a Green Bay touchdown.

To make matters worse, the refs got their Pittsburgh bias out early in the second half. The Packers were flagged for a 15 yard facemask penalty, which didn't actually happen, but the refs felt the need -as always - to help the Steelers out.

Here's hoping the Steelers can't take advantage of this.
