2011 packers



After missing the first four games of the year on suspension for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy (during which the Steelers went 3–1), quarterback Ben Roethlisberger returned for his seventh season as the Steelers starting quarterback, finishing the season with 3,200 yards and 17 touchdowns, with just five interceptions, for a 97 passer rating.

Aaron Rodgers was unstoppable for almost the entire season, throwing an incredible 45 touchdown passes with just six interceptions, leading the Packers to 15 wins and his first MVP award. According to a police officer standing near the affected area, the seats hadn't been installed in time for the fire marshal to inspect them. Packers lineman, Bryan Bulaga, became the youngest player to start in a Super Bowl, at the age of 21 years and 322 days old.

After forcing a punt, Pittsburgh mounted a drive to the Packers 29-yard line, but Green Bay's defense made a stand. [31] Super Bowl 50 deviated slightly from the standard design to emphasize the game's "golden anniversary", featuring the number "50" in large gold numbering on each side of the trophy rather than below it in Roman numerals; this modified layout, but with Roman numerals, has since been used for subsequent Super Bowl games.

The other two were made by rookie Sam Shields, who recorded his second interception near his own end zone with 37 seconds left to put the game away. However, the snow had melted by game time and fans who paid $200 per ticket were allowed to watch the game outside Cowboys Stadium, in the open air, as the weather turned from sleet to sun. [50], The NFL subsequently offered affected fans a ticket to the next Super Bowl in addition to the refund. Winning schools receive a $500 donation for their football program courtesy of the Packers and the NFL Foundation. Tramon Williams led the team with a career-high 6 interceptions, while adding 326 punt return yards.

In honor of those occasions, Super Bowl XX MVP Richard Dent and former Dallas Cowboys defensive back Deion Sanders, both of whom were inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2011, joined the ceremonies. For the third consecutive year, Woodley and Harrison each recorded at least 10 sacks.

It also offered fans the option of a ticket to any future Super Bowl, along with round-trip airfare and hotel accommodations. After the first three drives of the game ended with punts, Green Bay opened up the scoring with Aaron Rodgers's 29-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Jordy Nelson, who managed to pull slightly ahead of cornerback William Gay enough to make a leaping catch and fall into the end zone. In addition to Steelers and Packers fans left without seats, the suit includes Cowboys fans who paid $100,000 for personal seat licenses, only to have to watch the Super Bowl in metal folding chairs without a view of the stadium's giant video replay board. The Cowboys and Jerry Jones were dismissed as parties to the lawsuit since the plaintiffs' contracts were solely with the NFL.

[29], While past Super Bowl games used their own unique logo designs that changed yearly and featured imagery which reflected the host city, Super Bowl XLV introduced a new standardized design, featuring an image of the Vince Lombardi Trophy sitting atop the traditional Roman numerals used to denote each edition, with a stylized image of the host stadium shown in the background.
[36], Five days prior to the game, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, along with the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, seized and shut down several websites that had provided access to pirated Internet television feeds of NFL games.

[19] Over 3,000 tickets were sold to watch the game in the stadium's East Plaza, which experienced the falling ice tragedy earlier in the week. Or write about sports?

[66], Nelson was the top receiver of the game with 9 receptions for 140 yards (both career highs) and a touchdown,[68] while also gaining 19 more yards on a kick return, all despite 3 dropped passes. Their visit was delayed because of the NFL lockout and took place a day before the Packers first preseason game against the Cleveland Browns.

[4] The game's attendance was 103,219, just short of the Super Bowl record 103,985 set in Super Bowl XIV at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California. However, Pouncey was injured in the AFC championship game and would be inactive for Super Bowl XLV.[12]. We have tools and resources that can help you use sports data. [21] Chicago ended up losing the NFC Championship game a few days later on January 23 to Green Bay 21–14. Bishop recovered the ball and returned it 7 yards to the Packers 45. Green Bay Packers players and alumni remind fans that we are all united in the fight against COVID-19. [17], The retractable roof at Cowboys Stadium was closed for the game.[18].

2011 Green Bay Packers Starters, Roster, & Players: 15-1 (po:0-1) (1st in NFC North), Coach: Mike McCarthy, ProBowl: Jennings, Kuhn, Matthews, Raji, Rodgers, Wells, Woodson Snow fell from the roof of Cowboys Stadium's East end on February 4, injuring six people. Hyundai, Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen and Audi also advertised,[5] as did General Motors, who returned for the first time since their bankruptcy with advertisements for the Chevrolet Cruze, Camaro, Silverado and Volt. This score continued the unbeaten streak of Super Bowl victories recorded by teams scoring on an interception run-back, improving to 11–0 in such games. [54] The Texas Christian University Horned Frog Marching Band also performed during the pregame show. Shaun Suisham finished the drive with a 33-yard field goal to cut the score to 14–3. His top target was Wallace, who caught 9 passes for 89 yards and a score. [25] He did not attend the game; instead, he hosted a 100-person Super Bowl party at the White House. [37], With an average US audience of 111 million viewers, this was the most-watched Super Bowl as well as the most-watched program of any kind in American television history, beating the previous record of 106.5 million viewers for Super Bowl XLIV.

If the stadium had been filled to capacity (its record for an NFL game is 105,121 spectators), it would have set a record for Super Bowl attendance, breaking the previous record of 103,985 fans for Super Bowl XIV in the Rose Bowl; however the actual attendance of 103,219[45] fell 766 fans short. [13] In the Super Bowl game itself, the Packers never trailed. DETROIT, MI - NOVEMBER 24: James Jones #89 of the Green Bay Packers scores a third-quarter touchdown on a 65-yard pass from teammate Aaron Rodgers #12 during the third quarter of the game against the Detroit Lions at Ford Field on November 24, 2011 in Detroit, Michigan.
