Super Bowl 2011 Final Score: The Green Bay Packers Defeat The Pittsburgh Steelers 31-25 To Become Super Bowl Champions

The Lombardi Trophy is coming back to Green Bay.

The Green Bay Packers defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers tonight in Dallas to become The champions of the 45th Super Bowl. Green Bay jumped out to an early lead, then held on in the closing moments for a 31-25 win.

Aaron Rodgers performed up and down all night, he had over 300 yards passing and no interceptions, but his decision making and accuracy were on and off all night. He performed well enough to take home the MVP trophy and lead the Packers to their fourth Super Bowl title.

The thing that sank the Steelers was turnovers -- three of them to be exact. Pittsburgh dug its hole early, allowing a first quarter touchdown followed by a interception return for a touchdown on the very next offensive play. Ben Roethlisberger would throw one more interception and Rashard Mendenhal would fumble once, as well. Each turnover resulted in a touchdown on the ensuing Green Bay drive as the Packers took advantage.

Had Pittsburgh been able to control the ball, the outcome may have been different, but Green Bay deserves all the credit in the world for not folding with its lead slipping away down the stretch.

Congratulations to the Green Bay Packers, your 2011 NFL Super Bowl champions.
