Super Bowl XLIII: Pittsburgh 27 Arizona 23

Congratulations to the Pittsburgh Steelers, who won their sixth Super Bowl in dramatic fashion with their 27-23 win over the underdog Arizona Cardinals.
Three things killed the Cardinals:
1. At the end of the first half, Warner and the Cardinals, down 10-7. were at the goal line and threatening to tie or take the lead. Warner threw an interception which went back a Super Bowl record 100 yards for Pittsburgh to take a 17-7 lead.
2. Even given #2, Arizona battled back to a 23-20 lead with less than three minutes remaining. But they couldn’t hold that lead , when Big Ben and MVP Santonio Holmes went on a game winning TD drive (the second straight year a last minute TD drive decided the game).
3. Arizona made crucial penalties, a record 11 penalties for 106 yards. Sloppy play that killed their chances.
One other note–this was the most “pass wacky” Super Bowl I have ever seen from both sides. From a purist point of view, it was horrifying. I have to admit that it probably made it for it being more entertaining though.
Congrats, Pittsburgh! You’re the first team to get to six Super Bowl wins. Unfortunately, Kurt Warner is now the first QB in Super Bowl History to *lose* the Super Bowl with two *different* teams.
