Aaron Rodgers Named Super Bowl XLV Most Valuable Players

Brett Favre never won the MVP Award of the Super Bowl. Aaron Rodgers has. Rodgers was named MVP of Super Bowl XLV after the Green Bay Packers beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-25 in Super Bowl XLV.

Rodgers did what Ben Roethlisberger could not do – protect the football – in going 24/39 for 304 yards and 3 touchdowns. Rodgers had been dominant throughout the playoffs and ended his season with a clutch performance in the Super Bowl.

Replacing a legend is never easy, at least it wasn’t before Rodgers helped lead the Packers to the Super Bowl just three years after Brett Favre was traded to the New York Jets.
