In Super Bowl XLIII, Arizona and Pittsburgh combined for the fewest rushing attempts (38) and the fewest rushing yards (91) in Super Bowl history. The Cardinals outgained the Steelers in both passing yards (374 to 234) and total yards (407 to 292), but committed 11 penalties for 106 yards. Arizona's safety in the fourth quarter was only the sixth one scored in Super Bowl history, the first since Super Bowl XXV.
Warner completed 31 of 43 passes for 377 yards and three touchdowns, with one interception. His 377 yards was the second most in Super Bowl history behind his own record of 414 yards in Super Bowl XXXIV
Warner's top target was Fitzgerald, who caught seven passes for 127 yards and two touchdowns. Fitzgerald set a single postseason record with seven touchdown receptions, passing Jerry Rice, who had six in the 1988 postseason. Roethlisberger completed 21 of 30 passes for 256 yards and a touchdown, with one interception. Woodley had two sacks and a forced fumble, thus he continued setting NFL play-off records for consecutive multiple sack games by a player with 4. Arizona defensive tackle Darnell Dockett had both of Arizona's two sacks. Harrison's 100-yard interception return was the longest play of any kind in a Super Bowl. This was one of the most exciting Super Bowls in NFL history.
Glendale is the home to the Arizona Cardinals of the National Football Conference (NFL). The team formerly played at Sun Devil Stadium on the campus of Arizona State University in nearby Tempe, and in 2006 began playing at University of Phoenix Stadium. Designed by renowned architect Ron Elsensohn, the stadium was featured on The History Channel TV series, Modern Marvels because of its roll-out natural grass field. The stadium hosted Super Bowl XLII in 2008. Almost 1 year later on January 18 2009, it hosted the NFC Championship Game as the Arizona Cardinals defeated the Philadelphia Eagles 32-25 for the franchise's first ever Super Bowl berth. This was the same year the Arizona Cardinals made franchise history and went to the super bowl.
Jobing.com Arena (formerly Glendale Arena) is adjacent to University of Phoenix Stadium, and is the home of the Phoenix Coyotes of the National Hockey League (NHL), as well as the Arizona Sting of the National Lacrosse League (NLL). In 2009, the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Chicago White Sox are scheduled to share a new spring training complex and stadium in Glendale.
