In the preview of the Super Bowl I wrote on Saturday, I predicted the worst. I thought the Arizona Cardinal defense would have no answers to the Pittsburgh Steelers defense, and the Steelers led by their inept offensive line would just bumble through the game. Fortunately for all the football fans and bystanders on Sunday my predicted score of 3-2 didn’t happen.

What had happened was a 27-23 Steeler victory that has all the hallmarks for being a classic Super Bowl game.

It had everything - great offensive plays, great defensive goal line stands, a huge defensive score at the half and a rollercoaster of momentum that left everyone guessing until the final seconds.
