2011 Super Bowl: Steelers Benefit From Replay

Well, I knew it. You knew it. The whole world knew it was coming, and here it is. The good, old fashioned, Pittsburgh Steelers Super Bowl bailout.

Mike McCarthy challenged a play in which an Aaron Rodgers-to-Brett Swain pass was ruled incomplete after Swain had the ball knocked loose while falling to the ground. However, the replay showed that Swain made at least two, if not fifty, football moves before going down, yet Walt Anderson confirmed the on-field ruling, resulting in a Green Bay Packers punt.

The Steelers, after a penalty negated Green Bay's first punt, take over on Green Bay's 40 yard line trailing 21-17.
