Kinda like . . .
"Now it's Creed, now it's Balboa, now it's Creed, now it's Balboa, they're standing toe to toe in the center of the ring, what's keeping these two up, a tremendous closing moment . . ."
Evenly matched, anybody's game, legendary plays, perfect drama for any type of fan.
People do forget that the Steelers dominated
the third quarter (going up 20-9) though; which somewhat diminishes the game.
There were only three drives in that quarter since PIT's FG drive lasted over 8 1/2 minutes (!).
That 'lull' carried over into fourth (since PIT has a historically dominant 4Q D) until half the quarter was over.
That's when the madness happened.
It was similar to Panthers-Pats, when the first and third quarters were real snoozers with the second and fourth quarters being track meets
I do agree that it's one of the best SBs (in my lifetime) ever though. Maybe second after Broncos-Pack.
