As a Bears fan, it pains me to say this…Congratulations Packers Nation. The Packers defeated the Steelers 31-25 last night in Texas. I am very impressed how the Packers overcame adversity through out the regular season being decimated by injuries.
The injury bug even hit in the Super Bowl when they lost Donald Driver and Charles Woodson to injury.
Arlington, Texas — If these Green Bay Packers aren’t the most deserving champions of the Super Bowl era, they’re not far from it.
At the moment of truth Sunday night in Super Bowl XLV, the Packers overcame the first-half departures of Charles Woodson and Donald Driver to vanquish the Pittsburgh Steelers, 31-25, at Cowboys Stadium.
“It’s how our season has been since Day 1,” linebacker Desmond Bishop said. “We don’t blink. We know somehow, some way, somebody will make a play.”
Everything that made the Packers the startling success story that they became was evident against the Steelers.
Aaron Rodgers, the most valuable player, was magnificent. Just when the Packers’ chances were starting to become bleak deep in the second half, his powerful arm and remarkable accuracy kept the team afloat.
