Record Super Bowl Play Changes Game at Halftime

Talk about a swing play. The 100-yard interception return by Steelers linebacker James Harrison gave his team a 17-7 lead instead of going into the locker room tied or trailing. It was the longest play in Super Bowl history and will be shown on highlight reels for years to come.

The Cardinals fought back from a 10-0 second quarter deficit only to see a golden opportunity blow up in their faces. Quarterback Kurt Warner tried to hit wide receiver Anquan Boldin on a quick slant pattern and Harrison stepped right in front of him to pick it off. It appeared that Larry Fitzgerald was breaking off into the left corner of the end zone and would have been wide open on the third down play. 

Momentum was obviously on the Steelers side heading into the locker room after Arizona dominated the second quarter. The game is still surprisingly close, even with the possible 14-point swing. Most predictions had the Steelers winning by at least a touchdown.
