Aaron Rodgers Third Touchdown Pass Set Up By Third Steelers Turnover

The Green Bay Packers extended their lead in Super Bowl XLV to 28-17 on Aaron Rodgers third touchdown pass of the game – an 8-yard strike to Greg Jennings – after the Pittsburgh Steelers turned the ball over for the third time, a Rashard Mendenhall fumble that ended what appeared to be a promising Steelers’ drive.

Momentum seemed to be with the Steelers after Pittsburgh took over near midfield after a Packers punt. That ended when Clay Matthews stripped Mendenhall.
