What a game, what a game, what a game!!! The Pittsburgh Steelers are the 2009 Super Bowl Champions after defeating the Arizona Cardinals 27-24 making it the first franchise in NFL history to win six titles. Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin is the youngest head coach to ever win a Super Bowl. Undercover ballerina Santonio Holmes was named the 2009 Super Bowl MVP.
The Pittsburgh Steelers came out strong scoring a field goal and two touchdowns while the Cardinals struggled in the first quarter but managed to put up 7 points and almost a second touchdown in the last 30 seconds of the game.Fitzgerald went up in the end zone to bring in the Warner lob for a touchdown! It was an 87 yard drive in less than 3 minutes! Steelers were still winning 20-14.The Cardinals defense held the Steelers to a safety after a foul accord in the end zone. It was the first safety in a Super Bowl since Super Bowl 25. On the next Arizona drive, Larry Fitzgerald caught a slant pass in the middle and ran it into the end zone to give the Cardinals a 23-20 lead, their first lead in the game – what a run!!!
With less than 3 minutes, the pressure was now on Big Ben. He stepped in and started driving. With less than a minute, Holmes completed a huge 2nd down play to take the ball to the 7 yard line. Now it was up to the stellar Cardinals defense to hold them to a field goal but it was Holmes again who made an incredible catch, keeping both feet inbounds and to return the lead to the Steelers 27-23.
Damn – that was a sweet game!!!
That was one of the most exciting Super Bowls I have ever seen!
