QB Aaron Rodgers and WR Jordy Nelson share the cover of this week’s Sports Illustrated following the Packers’ 31-25 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV.

The cover photo shows Rodgers and Nelson celebrating after Nelson caught a 29-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter to put the Packers ahead 7-0.

The coverage of the game includes a Super Bowl recap by Tim Layden in which he discusses Rodgers’ journey from a junior college quarterback looking for a scholarship to Super Bowl MVP. Peter King’s piece talks about the injuries the Packers overcame, both during the season and the Super Bowl itself, to emerge victorious, and Jim Trotter’s contribution features the work of offensive tackles Chad Clifton and Bryan Bulaga against the Pittsburgh blitzes.
