The Arizona Cardinals and the Pittsburgh Steelers will faceoff in the Super Bowl, as the Steelers defeated the Ravens 23-14.

The Pittsburgh-Baltimore game was a battle between two defensive powerhouses; but, it was quarterback Ben Roethlisberger that was one of the primary reasons for the Steelers’ success, as he threw for 255 yds and a touchdown. Rookie quarterback Joe Flacco, on the other hand, hindered Baltimore by throwing 3 interceptions, 2 of which were in the 4th quarter. The Ravens and Steelers had previously faced each other twice in the regular season and Pittsburgh won both of those meetings, as well.

The Steelers and the Cardinals, who are polar opposites, should provide for an interesting matchup in the Super Bowl. The Cardinals have been the best offensive team in the playoffs, while the Steelers are the best offensive team in the league. Will Pittsburgh be able to stop the dynamic duo of Kurt Warner and Larry Fitzgerald? Will the Cards be able to complete their Cinderella story? We will all find out on February 1st, when Super Bowl XLIII takes place in Tampa Bay, Florida.
