Packers race to 21-10 lead over Steelers in Super Bowl

Greenbay The Green Bay Packers, looking sharp on both sides of the ball, rolled to a 21-10 lead over the Pittsburgh Steelers at halftime of the Super Bowl on Sunday at Cowboys Stadium.

Aaron Rodgers completed 11 of 16 passes, including touchdown strikes to Jordy Nelson and Greg Jennings, to give the NFC champion Packers a commanding lead at intermission.

Green Bay cornerback Nick Collins intercepted a pass by Ben Roethlisberger and returned it 37 yards for a score to give the Packers a 14-0 first quarter lead.

The Packers held a 21-3 lead and threatened to turn the game into a rout but Roethlisberger hit Hines Ward on an eight-yard scoring pass 39 seconds before intermission to trim the Steelers’ deficit to 21-10.
