Last night, thanks to the help of Aaron Rodgers, the Green Bay Packers were able to defeat rivals Pittsburgh Steelers to become the 2011 Super Bowl Champions in Texas. The show was broadcasted live across the nation on FOX, in what is expected to be one of the most-viewed Super Bowl games ever.
Aaron Rodgers threw for 304 yards and three touchdowns, with a 111.5 passer rating. He earned MVP honors, and joined Bart Starr (twice) and Brett Favre on the list of Green Bay Packers quarterbacks to win MVP honors. The Packers won the game, 31-25, the second game in NFL history to finish with that score.
After their Super Bowl victory, the Green Bay Packers are the second most successful franchise in NFL history. The Pittsburgh Steelers, with their six Lombardi trophies and eight appearances, are the third best team in NFL history.
