2011 Super Bowl: Ben Roethlisberger's Interceptions Hurting Steelers As Packers Open Up 21-3 Lead

Ben Roethlisberger throws a second interception (to Jarrett Bush, this time) on a really horrible ball – Roethlisberger was clearly throwing into traffic the whole time. The Packers get the ball back with an 11-point lead and about four minutes left to play in the first half.

The interception ruined a decent drive that featured a beautiful catch by Antwaan Randle El (that Randle El got way too excited about, but still).

After a couple of first downs, Aaron Rodgers throws a 21-yard touchdown over the middle to Greg Jennings. Troy Polamalu hits Jennings at the goal line, but it isn’t enough, and now it’s 21-3, as Roethlisberger’s two interceptions have proven very costly.

The Steelers badly need to put together a drive with two and a half minutes left in the half. Antonio Brown receives the kickoff, and the Steelers start at their own 23 yard line.
