inArlington, Feb 7, (THAINDIAN NEWS) Despite being marred by injuries to many of its players, a resolute Green Bay Packers showcased a spectacular performance on Sunday night to materialize its dream of winning the fourth Super Bowl title. With experienced players such as cornerback Charles Woodson, receiver Donald Driver unable to return to the game owing to injuries, the chances of Packers winning the prestigious champions looked a bit grim if not impossible. However, the NFC champions silenced all their critics and proved yet again team effort was one of their biggest strengths when they convincingly defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers last night by 31-25 to take home the Super Bowl title.

Packers cornerback Charles Woodson was carted off the field during Sunday night’s Super Bowl championship at the Arlington based Cowboys Stadium, following a collarbone injury, due to which he was not able to return to the game later on. However, the much-acclaimed cornerback was not the only player who sustained injuries during the clash as the Packers went into the halftime without cornerback Sam Shields, who injured his shoulder while Nick Collins had to retreat to the locker room to get intravenous fluids. At the same time, Packers’ wide receiver Donald Driver had to leave the game early due to an ankle injury although an X-ray test that was conducted later showed negative results.

However, during the second half of the game, Packers cornerback Sam Shields was able to return in spite of a painful shoulder injury to ensure his team’s much-anticipated victory. The successive injuries suffered by its players failed to beat the gritty Green Bay Packers who were able to overcame all the hurdles to win the championship.
