Super Bowl Notebook: Tramon Williams Made the Big Plays

February 11, 2011

Feb 7, 2011 | Mike Sherman | newsok.com

Until the postseason, Green Bay Packers cornerback Tramon Williams was the guy who played opposite Charles Woodson, the guy opposing teams threw at if they wanted a chance to win.

But when Woodson went down with a broken collarbone, it was up to Williams to make the big plays — just like he has throughout the playoffs.

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was a natural for MVP of Super Bowl 45. He threw lasers all over Cowboys Stadium Sunday night, three going for touchdowns in Green Bay’s 31-25 triumph over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Rodgers, by the way, now has as many Super Bowl rings as Brett Favre.

None of that would have been possible, however, if not for Williams and his bookend big plays.

One saved the Packers a catastrophic start. The other clinched the victory.

The clincher you’ll see on all the highlights. With Pittsburgh facing fourth-and-5 at its 33 and 56 seconds left, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw high to Mike Wallace. Wallace got both hands on the ball. Williams got one, and that was enough to bat the ball away. The Steelers, who spent the whole game digging out after landing in a 14-0 first-quarter hole, were finished.
