The final score of the game was 31-25. There were also a total number of 91,060 people in attendance for Super Bowl XLV.
The MVP of the game was Aaron Rodgers, who happened to be quarterback for the Packers. He ended up completing 25 of 39 passes for 304 yards and three touchdowns. The Packers were on fire during the first half of the game, which allowed them to eventually win the entire Super Bowl.
The National Anthem was sung by Christina Aguilera and the halftime show was performed by The Black Eyed Peas, Usher, and Slash.
