Arizona had come into Super Bowl XLII not winning a title since 1947, the longest drought for any team in the league. The Pittsburgh Steelers had won five Super Bowls, tied with the Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers. One flaw already, the game started too early. By the time I tuned in, it was already 17-7 in favor of the Steelers in the third quarter, and just like that Pittsburgh had nailed another field goal. 20-7.
The Cardinals would come back and make a run. It was either eight or ten plays, the next drive for Arizona would be, yet lasted under four minutes as Larry Fitzgerald caught a touchdown pass to make it 20-14. To get the Cards even more pumped up, the Steelers didn't do anything on their next possession. But when Pittsburgh punted, the Cardinals weren't able to take advantage. Instead of attempting a long field goal, Arizona punted, and pinned Big Ben and the Steelers inside their own two-yard line. Arizona was eventually rewarded with two points after a holding penalty on Pittsburgh in the end zone resulted in a safety.
Arizona scored with style on a long, 65+ yard touchdown (not sure exactly how long it was) and it was caught by none other than Larry Fitzgerald. 23-20, Arizona. But they had scored too early. Big Ben and his crew had over two minutes to get at least a field goal. But they just had to ruin it for the Cardinals, scoring with less than a minute remaining making it 27-23 as Arizona did nothing on what would of been the game-winning drive, and entitled Pittsburgh the dynasty of the league, now leading the National Football League with six titles. Boo them. Arizona won.
