Simply Fantastic!

Steelers’ QB Ben Roethlisberger’s 6-yard touchdown pass to Santonio Holmes with 35 seconds left gave Pittsburgh a soaring 27-23 victory over the Cardinals on Sunday night at Raymond James Stadium.

The QB

The win last night was the Steelers’ 6th Lombardi trophy, the most by any clubs. But what a win it was!


What can you say about a game in which the longest play in Super Bowl history -- a 100-yard interception return for a touchdown by Pittsburgh linebacker James Harrison -- was almost rendered a mere footnote? A contest that virtually eclipsed the highly anticipated glory-days halftime set of Bruce Springsteen?

For more than three quarters, Super Bowl XLIII was idling along toward yet another Pittsburgh Steelers victory when, well, all hell broke loose. When it was over, it may well have been the most exciting Super Bowl ever.

Just when it looked like the Arizona Cardinals had authored the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history -- scoring 16 unanswered points in the fourth quarter -- the Steelers answered with a monstrous, improbable drive.

The winning catch!

And that pass from the Steelers’ QB to the Super Bowl MVP sealed the deal and made it one memorable night.
