After much consideration, some arguing, and even a few tears, we present the NFL RUSH Top 5 Super Bowls List

 

#5 - Super Bowl XIII: Pittsburgh 35, Dallas 31 

#4 - Super Bowl XXXVI - New England 20, St. Louis 17 

#3 - Super Bowl XXIII - San Francisco 20, Cincinnati 16

If you like underdogs making heroic efforts, big time NFL players making big time NFL plays, and fantastic, down-to-the-wire finishes...Super Bowl XLIII is for you.    

 

The favored Steelers jumped out to a 10-0 lead and the game had all the makings of a super blow out. 

 

The underdog Cardinals, however, showed huge heart and fought back. Midway through the second quarter, former grocery store clerk Kurt Warner threw a 45-yard strike to Anquan Boldin down to the Steelers' 1-yard line. On the next play, Warner nearly fell over after taking the snap, but he regained his balance and threw a 1-yard touchdown pass to Ben Patrick.

 

Right before halftime the Cardinals drove to the Pittsburgh 1-yard line.   It appeared that they would take the lead, and the momentum, heading into halftime.

 

But a big time player made a big time play.  Steelers LB James Harrison picked off a Warner pass intended for Boldin and rambled for the then-longest play in Super Bowl history, a 100-yard return for a touchdown.  The Steelers took a 17–7 lead and all the momentum into halftime.

 

Things looked bleak as the Steelers took a 20-7 lead into the fourth quarter, but Warner, Larry Fitzgerald and the rest of the Cardinals refused to fold.   Warner led the Cardinals on an eight-play, 87-yard  drive cumulating with an end zone fade pass to Fitzgerald, whose leaping catch made the score 20-14.

 

After a holding penalty against the Steelers resulted in a safety, the Cardinals took possession of the ball trailing 20-16 with 2:57 left in the game.  Warner promptly hit a streaking Fitzgerald for a 64-yard TD to take the lead, 23-20.  Wow!

 

Pittsburgh got the ball back on the 22-yard line with 2:37 left in the game and it was Ben Roethlisberger's time to shine. Big Ben led the Steelers down the field and with 35 seconds, Santonio Holmes made a fantastic catch in the end zone for the game winning score!

 

Watch Super Bowl XLVIII at 6:30pm ET on Sunday, February 2nd on Fox.
