2011 Super Bowl: Steelers Miss Field Goal, Still Trail 21-17

The Steelers again are driving fairly effortlessly despite an inaccurate deep throw and a couple of rather scary decisions by Ben Roethlisberger. Clay Matthews just batted down a pass, and it was among the first times he has been a factor. The Steelers’ offensive line has played really well – the running game has looked very good, and Roethlisberger has mostly had plenty of time to pass. The Packers finally did just pick up a sack, setting up a 52-yard field goal by Shaun Suisham, who was almost comically off to the left.

The Steelers are still down 21-17, but I feel better about their chances than I did a few minutes ago. They’re running the ball pretty much at will, with Rashard Mendenhall, Isaac Redman and Mewelde Moore all playing well. For the Packers, Aaron Rodgers has been terrific, but his teammates haven’t really backed up up, with several big drops by his wide receivers.
