Super Bowl 2011: The Biggest Moments from Super Bowl XLV

Initially, there was nothing particular about Super Bowl XLV between the Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers that was of interest to me.  I knew I would watch the game with some degree of attention, but was primarily more excited to be with friends and watch the commercials.

In a non-competitive first half that saw the Packers strike out to an early 21-10 lead, I was largely uninterested in continuing further in front of the TV.  

Then, the second half kicked off and the game was on.  Pittsburgh's comeback was inevitable, but how close would they come?  Playing from behind, they didn't mount a furious rally of quick scores, but built momentum gradually as they reined the Pack back towards even.  

As the clock ticked down in the fourth quarter, the Steelers kept coming, which precipitated a dramatic finish that I hadn't expected just an hour earlier.  

Within that comeback, and the time preceding it, were many signature moments that this Super Bowl will be remembered for.  

Here are the 10 biggest game-changing moments from Super Bowl XLV.
