Super Bowl 2011 Score: Green Bay Scores And Extends It's Lead to 31-25, Sets Up For One Great Finish And Possibly Even Overtime

Green Bay needed to put together a great drive that drained a lot of time off the clock, and they did just that. The only thing that they could have improved on was the final result.

Aaron Rodgers led his team 70 yards down the field on a drive that took 5:24 off the clock.

This was a major drive, and to add to the fact that this was such a major drive, Green bay had all but given up on their running game, but they found it here.

They settle for a six point game and sets up what could be the first overtime game under the new NFL Overtime rules:

Each team must possess or have the opportunity to possess the ball unless the team that has the ball first scores a touchdown on its initial possession. Play continues in sudden death until a winner is determined, and the game automatically ends upon any score (by safety, field goal, or touchdown) or when a score is awarded by the Referee for a palpably unfair act. Each team has three time-outs per half and all general timing provisions apply as during a regular game. The try is not attempted if a touchdown is scored. Disqualified players are not allowed to return.

Also, thanks to Papa Johns, everyone gets free pizza if we get over time.
