Packers win Super Bowl 45, offseason of uncertainty awaits

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - The Pack is back. NFL football? Well, nobody's quite sure when that's going to return.

Led by quarterback Aaron Rodgers, the Green Bay Packers returned to the top of the football world Sunday with a 31-25 victory over Pittsburgh in the Super Bowl.

It was yet another thrilling capper to the NFL's season, but this time, when they turned out the lights on the championship game, there was no guarantee they'd be back next fall.

A labor war that pits rich athletes against richer owners could shut down the game.

The collective bargaining agreement that led to unprecedented success for the NFL expires at the end of the day on March 3, and barring an agreement before then, owners are threatening to lock
out players.
