Aaron Rodgers Throws Second Touchdown Pass, Packers Leads Steelers 21-3

The Green Bay Packers are threatening to turn Super Bowl XLV into a blowout. Following the second Ben Roethlisberger interception of the first half, Aaron Rodgers threw his second touchdown pass – this one a 21-yard strike to Greg Jennings – giving the Packers a 21-3 lead late in the 2nd quarter.

The Steelers looked like they were beginning to get in gear, having kicked a field goal and forced the Packers to punt. Nearing midfield, Roethlisberger tried to squeeze a pass to Mike Wallace but found the Packers instead. Just 4 plays and 53 yards later, the Packers were in the end-zone.

The Steelers trailed the Baltimore Ravens 21-7 at halftime during the divisional round of the playoffs, but Joe Flacco wasn’t playing as well as Aaron Rodger is now – and that game was in Pittsburgh.
