2011 Super Bowl: Mike Wallace Burns Packers As Steelers Cut Lead To Three

Ben Roethlisberger just completed a long pass down the sidelines to Mike Wallace for a touchdown, and Antwaan Randle El scored the two-point conversion on an elaborate play that began with a playfake, then a quarterback draw, then an option toss. (Bruce Arians ended up looking pretty creative and smart, but I’m sure Steelers fans would have been outside his house with pitchforks if it hadn’t worked).

The Steelers are now down just 28-25 with seven-and-a-half minutes to play. Aaron Rodgers and the Packers will begin their next drive at their own 25 yard line. The Steelers will look to stop the Packers relatively quickly and get at least one more chance to take the lead, or at least to tie the game.

Some of the guys I’m watching this with are wondering who will be the MVP if the Steelers win this one – Wallace, maybe? He was relatively quiet in the first half, but he now has 89 yards receiving. Hines Ward has 73 yards.
