Tristan ThornburghSocial Media StaffJanuary 23, 2014

Super Bowl XLIII's matchup between the Arizona Cardinals and Pittsburgh Steelers came down to the wire and produced one of the most memorable plays in recent Super Bowl history. 

Following a 64-yard touchdown by Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald, the Steelers had 2:37 to march down the field trailing 23-20. Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger's six-yard pass to Santonio Holmes travelled to the back of the end zone and wide receiver Santonio Holmes managed to get both feet down to give the Steelers a lead with 35 seconds remaining. 

The Steelers went on to win 27-23.
