It was altogether fitting that the defense scored the game-sealing TD. And Polamalu in particular, given all the pre-game hype about the Baltimore safety Reed's pick-sixes.
And lest I am remiss, Ben Roethlisberger made a couple of brilliant plays that proved to be as game winning as Troy's pick-6.
The Ryan Clark -Willis McGahee collision pretty much summarized the Pittsburgh-Baltimore series. I hope both of them are OK.
I am glad that the Steelers stuck with the run despite not getting much out of the running game.
The Steelers should have put this game away by Q4. And they should really put more plays in for Mewelde Moore.
All that having been said, I now have a legit rooting interest in Super Bowl 43 and for that I am very grateful and happy.
