    Quarterback Aaron Rodgers threw three touchdowns as the Green Bay Packers defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-25 to win their fourth Super Bowl and the first in 14 years.


    The Packers took a 14-0 lead in the first quarter, Rodgers delivering a 29-yard touchdown pass to Jordy Nelson, before cornerback Nick Collins intercepted a pass by Ben Roethlisberger and returned it 37 yards for a score.


    Pittsburgh got on the board with a field goal in the second quarter, but then Rodgers again showed his class to pick out Greg Jennings in the end zone with a 21-yard pass to make it 21-3.


    Pittsburgh fought back with Roethlisberger hitting Hines Ward on an eight-yard scoring pass 39 seconds before halftime.


    When Rashard Mendenhall powered over with an eight-yard run early in the third to reduce the deficit to just four points, the momentum looked to have shifted.


    But a third turnover from the Steelers led to a second Jennings touchdown.


    And while Pittsburgh's Mike Wallace collected a 25-yard touchdown pass from Roethlisberger, the Packers were able to hold on, intercepting Roethlisberger at the end of the game to clinch the championship.
