Super Bowl XL: Halftime Seahawks 3, Steelers 7
On 3rd down, Big Ben connected with Hines Ward for a big 37 yard reception that set up a 1 yard touchdown run by Ben Roethlisberger. The play was challenged by Seattle, but was it was too close to overturn the call. That took us under the 2 minute warning. Seattle’s 2 minute offense came into effect and ended with what I consider to be a conservative FG attempt. Pittsburg accidentally called a timeout with a confused defense on the field; Seattle failed to capitalize with 7 seconds on the clock. I thought there might have been time to attempt one shot down the field or at least relieve some pressure off the kicker by taking it in another 10-15 yards, then call a their last timeout. However, they opted to attempt a 54 yard FG that went wide. Bring on Mick Jagger.
