Pittsburgh Steels 2009 SuperbowlTim King Salem-News.com
The longest run in history at a Superbowl of 100 yards was accomplished by Steelers linebacker James Harrison today.
(TAMPA BAY) - Pittsburg started Superbowl XLIII strong and consistent, with the Cardinals gaining steam in the second quarter. Both teams worked hard but in the end Arizona was no match for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The final score was 27 to 23.
The longest run in history at a Superbowl of over 100 yards was accomplished by linebacker James Harrison today, as he ran an interception all the way from one end of the field to the other, scoring a touchdown that brought the Steelers to 17-7 in the first half of the game.
Bruce Springsteen and the "E" Street Band took the stage during Halftime and had the crowd on their feet, playing songs that dominated MTV in the 1980's. It seems the appeal of Glory Days will never go away, or the appeal of the Boss.
Arizona scored 2 points in the fourth quarter with a safety. Then a touchdown unexpectedly put Arizona ahead by three points.
Pittsburgh took the lead back in the last seconds of the game, bringing the score to 27-23 with 35 seconds remaining in the game.
Arizona took another time out with 22 seconds remaining in the game. Then a forced fumble saw the Cards lose control of the ball to the Steelers once again; the last thing they were trying to do.
The Steelers secured their 6th Superbowl win today. That is a league record. It was the Cardinal's first Superbowl Game in history.
