Capping a remarkable fourth quarter, Santonio Holmes made a brilliant catch for a 6-yard touchdown with 35 seconds remaining to give the Pittsburgh Steelers a record sixth Super Bowl title, 27-23 over the gutty Arizona Cardinals on Sunday night.

Arizona was poised for the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history when Larry Fitzgerald hauled in his second touchdown pass, a 64-yarder from Kurt Warner with 2:37 left to put the Cardinals ahead 23-20.

But the Steelers drove 78 yards, with Holmes making a 40-yard catch that gave Pittsburgh a first down at the 6. After an incompletion, Ben Roethlisberger lofted a pass over three Arizona defenders in the right corner of the end zone, and Holmes brought it down while dragging the toes of each foot in bounds.
