Steelers out to awful start
By James Walker
ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Pittsburgh Steelers are off to an awful start in Super Bowl XLV against the Green Bay Packers.
First, the Steelers' defense allowed a 29-yard touchdown pass to Green Bay's Jordy Nelson. Then, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw an interception that was returned by Nick Collins for a touchdown. Roethlisberger was pressured and hit on the play. Starting right tackle Flozell Adams injured his left shoulder during the interception return and didn't return for the next series. Green Bay leads 14-0 after the first quarter.
That's the bad news. The good news is it's early.
