LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC-TV) – Though the hometown favorites, the New Orleans Saints, weren't in action, local football fans were still pumped about Super Bowl XLV .

Dozens showed up at Buffalo Wild Wings in Lake Charles to see the Green Bay Packers defeat the Pittsburgh Steelers, 31 to 25.

"Pittsburgh is overrated," said a Packers fan.

"I hope the Steelers don't cry off the field too bad," added another.

Meanwhile across town, the game kept pizza-makers like Dominoes busy all evening.

"It doesn't matter if the Saints are playing," said Mary Rutledge with Lake Charles Dominoes. "We've been very busy today."

Rutledge said the Super Bowl is one of the store's busiest nights of the entire year.

She said her team starts preparing for the game days in advance.

"Everybody works on Super Bowl Sunday," said Rutledge.

Rutledge said her store's average delivery time was 25 minutes during the game.
