Defense wins championships? Pretty much. But despite the victory in XLIII, the Steelers' No. 1 defense was sliced up for 407 yards and lost a 13-point lead in the fourth quarter that nearly left them on the wrong side of the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history. Still, that same defense provided a touchdown and came up with the nail-in-the-coffin fumble at the end.

Steeler D had ONE blunder the entire game. The two TDs that were caught before that were catches that were some of the most amazing catches I have seen, Our DBs had their hands inside the ball and Patrick and Fitz still made amazing catches. Although, I saw the tip of the ball hit the ground on that Fitz catch, surprised not too many people talked about it.
If you take away Fitz 64 yarder and the garbage time yards with 35 seconds left, Fitz has 57 yards and Warner is under 300 yards passing. They rushed for 33 yards. I would say our D played championship football all the way.
