The 10 Best Super Bowls

Super Bowl XLIII

Super Bowl XLIII

Pittsburgh 27, Arizona 23

That inexplicable thing called momentum probably never felt so real and fateful as it did on a remarkable 100-yard interception for a touchdown by Steelers NFL defensive MVP James Harrison. It happened on the final play of the first half, turning a likely four-point Cardinals lead into a 10-point edge by the renowned Steelers. It certainly gave everyone watching, all over the world, the feeling that momentum had swung fatefully to the Steelers' sideline. But everyone was wrong. Kurt Warner and Larry Fitzgerald refused to fold, leading the way to a 23-20 edge late in the fourth quarter. And then just as suddenly, Ben Roethlisberger found Santonio Holmes four times in what would be the game-winning drive, including a tip-toeing touchdown reception as Pittsburgh won its second Super Bowl in four seasons, and record sixth.
