NFL RUSH
Lombardi has Come Home!
"The Lombardi Trophy has returned to Green Bay, the city where it's namesake is most famous"

It went down to the wire again, but this time Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers came out on the short end and the Packers re-possessed the Lombardi Trophy.

 

Well, who could have seen that coming? Sure, Green Bay was looked at as a playoff contender at the beginning of the season, but not much credence was given to their title hopes at the start of the season? The Packers had a few “keys to the game” that they needed to fulfill to win, and they did (obviously). Here they are. . .

 

KEY 1: STOP RASHARD MENDENHALL

 

In order for the Pack to win, they needed to render ineffective the Steelers ground game. Mendenhall, being the cross-breed of back that he is, had been one of the tougher backs to bring down in the postseason. Green Bay held him to under 100 yards and forced him to fumble.

 

 

KEY 2: DETAIN THE PITTSBURGH D

 

Pittsburgh has one of the more dominant defenses in the league, so it was imperative that the Packers offensive be able to counteract that. The Packers offensive line did a great job creating holes for the Green Bay backfield, as well as buying Super Bowl MVP Aaron Rodgers some time to make plays.

 

KEY 3: BRING DOWN BIG BEN

 

Not allowing Roethlisberger to extend plays with his legs was very important. Clay Matthews and the rest of the Green Bay unit did a fine job of finishing the play.

 

That’s it for now!
