Steelers get one for the other hand with SB XLIII victory
In Super Bowl XLII the Patriots scored with just a few minutes left to take the lead, leaving the Giants enough time to drive down and score and Tom Brady was left to throw a few hail mary passes in a last chance effort to try to win it. This year it was the Cardinals who scored with enough time remaining to let the Steelers score with :36 seconds remaining on an incredible catch by Santonio Holmes, the Super Bowl MVP.
All I had hoped for coming in was for this game to not be a one-sided Steelers drubbing of Arizona. Instead, we got one of the best Super Bowls in recent memory.
