I don’t mean to be a crab, which I am, but why can’t the Super Bowl guys just ditch those roman numerals for good. Or at least be consistent. Let’s see…
Today the Green Bay Packers beat the Pittsburgh Steelers XXXI-XXV in Super Bowl XLV.
The first quarter was all Packers, as they jumped out to a XIV point lead. Aaron Rodgers throws well, on his way to an eventual CCCIV in passing yardage.
In the second quarter Pittsburgh gets on the board with X, scoring twice; while Green Bay scores VI on Greg Jennings catch, then kicks the extra point for I—sending the teams into the locker room with the Packers holding a comfortable XI point lead.
Coming out for the third quarter, the Packers struggle to score. The Steelers close within IV.
The Packers are unstoppable in the fourth, scoring on an VIII yard touchdown pass to Jennings and kicking a late field goal for III points.
Again, final score: Packers XXXI; Steelers XXV.
