Pittsburgh Super Steelers
There’s a new (old) champion in town. After a ho-hum first three quarters, the Super Bowl decided to turn incredibly exciting in the fourth quarter as both teams fought each other tooth and nail for the opportunity to call themselves Super Bowl champions. Ultimately, it was the Steelers that came out on top, but in order to win their sixth championship, Pittsburgh had to survive the an Arizona team who had no idea about backing down.
While there were some magnificent fourth quarter plays, the game’s outcome was probably decided by James Harrison’s first half-ending 100-yard interception return for a touchdown. Before the turnover, the Cardinals were driving with an opportunity to either tie the game or take the lead going into the locker room. Unfortunately for the Buzzsaw that is Arizona, James Harrison had other ideas.
We’ll have a ton of posts discussing last night’s incredible finish, but before I end this one, I’ll leave you with a video of Ben Roethlisberger and his ability to escape defenders and prolong plays. Roethlisberger’s elusiveness kept his offense on the field longer than it probably should’ve been:
And that has a lot to do with Pittsburgh’s sixth Super Bowl ring.
