The well awaited biggest football game of the NFL season was last night and what a game it was. It had a little slow start but overall was a great game. The Steelers scored first and then the Cardinals came back. Right before haft time, James Harrison from the Steelers intercepted a pass from Arizona QB Kurt Warner in the end zone and ran it back for 100 yards, which was the longest play in Super Bowl history. The third quarter was just lame though, not too much going on. The fourth quarter was when both teams got to the “nitty gritty.” Arizona scored with a touchdown to Larry Fitzgerald to make it a 20-14 game. Arizona then got a safety on Pittsburgh with an offensive holding call in the end zone that made the game 20-16. On the following series, Fitzgerald scored another touchdown to make the game 23-20 and gave Arizona its first lead of the game with 2:36 left. But, Pittsburgh rallied back and scored a touchdown with 35 seconds left to make it 27-23 and win the game. Congrats go to the Super Bowl 43 champions.

The Arizona Cardinals started strong and had an 18 point lead on the Eagles up to the 3rd quarter. Larry Fitzgerald was almost untouchable. He ended with 3 touchdowns in the game. The Cardinals defense also was key in the victory as they got to McNabb plenty of times during the game. The Eagles made a strong comeback and were close to victory but the Cardinals were the better team this game winning 32-25 and are now headed to Super Bowl 43.

Arizona Cardinals Defeat Carolina Panthers, 33-13

This is the result that I wanted to happen with this game but did not think that it was actually going to happen. From the beginning of the game it was all Arizona. WR Larry Fitzgerald was catching all the tough passes for the Cards and Carolina’s Jake Delhomme just simply had a bad game. Delhomme threw 5 interceptions on his 34th birthday. The Cards were the better team and are headed to their 1st NFC Championship Game next week in franchise history. The winner of the Eagles/Giants game will face the Cardinals next week. The final score was 33-13
