Super Bowl XLV

Turnovers Cost Steelers the Title

The Pittsburgh Steelers were uncharacteristically sloppy in Sunday’s Super Bowl—and it cost them the title. The team had three turnovers—two interceptions and one fumble—that all led to Green Bay touchdowns. Pittsburgh trailed the entire game, but still made it close, coming back from a 21-3 deficit just before the half to trail by three in the final quarter. In the end, the Packers won 31-25, and Pittsburgh defensive end Brett Keisel said the turnovers were the difference: “Three turnovers to zero. Every time they got a turnover they scored.”
