Not sure if they'll pull it off, but I'm rooting for the Cardinals.  Nothing against the Steelers, but it's fun to root for the underdog.   :D

Steelers 27, Cards 24.

:o

I really didn't care who won, I just wanted a good game...  after the 100yd INT TD to end the first half, I was worried that would be the death blow to the Cards morale.  Guess not!  They stuck with it and made it one heck of a 4th quarter.

the fitz touchdown is what had me jump up. After the 100 yd int return at the half it looked pretty bad. Toward the end of of the 3rd quarter it looked like it was all steelers. The end of the game really made it a great game. The safety, The big Fitz TD, then the responding holmes game winner. Just as exciting as last year.

I called the score, just had the cards on top.

Well seasons over. everyones 0-0 New bronc's coach, hopefully a new defense. Here's to the bronc's next season :)

Yeah, couldn't be much closer on my guess!  ;D

I was rooting Cards, but like you mostly wanted a good game.  It was better than advertised.

I'm glad to see all the Steelers haters denied. :)

They got love for this game from everyone, but pretty much only this game...  So as a Steelers fan, I always feel like an underdog anymore (to the point I hate watching games and would rather listen to the local announcers call it on the radio).  This one was for Myron Cope givin' the big Yoi! up in the sky.  Here we go Steelers, Here we go! ;D  I just had to post about this, I'm so excited.

And as a football fan that was an outstanding game...  Fitzgerald's TD was incredible.  As a Steelers fan I'd have preferred a boring blowout on our part, rather than staying up way later than I should be watching the game and now some celebration footage after (Oakland and the South Side are simply insane).  When I left my gf's place I have to drive through a street on my way home that has about 4 little local dives on it...  All 4 had huge crowds spilling out into the street with Terrible Towels.   What a sight...  This is even better than the win a few years ago.

It may not have made a difference, but I think that was a bad call at the end of the game.  It should've been ruled an incomplete pass.  I doubt the Cardinals could pull anything off with only 5 seconds left, but still.

It was an exciting game and a fun one to watch.

No way...that was totally an empty hand and I think it was right.  But I still could not believe they didn't review it.  Santonios TD was just as amazing as Tyree's catch last year.  Great game, I'm glad the Steelers won :)

The whole game was decided on the Harrison TD at the end of the first half...  If the Cardinals just manage a FG there, they win. Hell, if Fitzgerald just makes the tackle at the half inch line they'd have won.

We had a blast watching the game. I thought the game was wrapped up in the first quarter, but glad I was wrong.

Actually because of the 15 yard personal foul on Arizona on the play, the Steelers would have got half the distance to the goal and the half can't end on a defensive penalty so they Steelers would have had one play to score from the foot line. So it wasn't quite as simple as "if Fitzgerald just makes the tackle".

Was that penalty before or after the change of possession?  I don't remember Madden and Michaels mentioning that.

It was after the change. On "Mike and Mike In the Morning" on ESPN they had someone from the Refs office officially state that.
