Steelers Win Super Bowl

By  | 

The Pittsburgh Steelers have taken the fifth.

The Steelers are the Super Bowl champs for the fifth time following a 21-to-10 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Detroit. They join the Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers as the only teams to win five Super Bowls.

The Steelers did it with a lot of help from Willie Parker, Antoine Randle El and Super Bowl MVP Hines Ward. Parker set a Super Bowl record with a 75-yard touchdown run that put Pittsburgh ahead 14-to-3 just 22 seconds into the second half. The Seahawks closed to within 14-to-10 before Randle El became the first wide receiver to throw a touchdown pass in a Super Bowl. He hit Ward for a 43-yard score to cap the scoring with 8:56 remaining.

Ward finished with five receptions for 123 yards and a pair of important first downs that jumpstarted the Steelers' offense. Pittsburgh went three-and-out on its first three possessions before Ward grabbed an eight-yard pass for a first down. Ward also extended the drive with an 18-yard end around.
