Pittsburgh Steelers ...

... win their sixth Super Bowl.

And they found a great way to win it:

[With about 3 minutes left] The Steelers’ comeback did not begin well. A holding penalty put them in a deeper hole, if that was even possible. But it ended spectacularly. Roethlisberger, as he had many times in the game, extended plays with his lumbering legs. Starting from their 12, Roethlisberger pushed the Steelers to midfield and then, after an amazing pump fake, he finds Santonio Holmes. Pure speed to about the 5. An amazing play. An amazing drive. An amazing game. Two plays later, Holmes made a dramatic catch for a touchdown. At the edge of the end zone, his tippy-toes in the red and the whole crowd watched him fall out of bounds. The officials reviewed the play. It was good.
