Super Bowl XLV score by quarter
While the Packers and Steelers will long remember the final score of Super Bowl XLV, millions of others are celebrating these numbers: 4, 0, 1, 7 and 5.
That’s because of a time-honored office tradition: the Super Bowl Squares pool. The concept is simple: Everyone picks a square on a chart and throws in a few dollars. Each square corresponds to the points scored by the Steelers and Packers in the big game. The score at the end of each quarter — specifically the last digit each team’s score — determines which square wins a portion of the pot.
This year, the Super Bowl score by quarter was as follows:
First Quarter – Packers 14 – Steelers 0
Half time – Packers 21 – Steelers 10
Third Quarter – Packers 21 – Steelers 17
Final – Packers 31 – Steelers 25
