Pittsburgh Steelers Are Now Record Breakers

02.02.09 | FL News Team

With just seconds to go before the end of the game, Pittsburgh receiver Santonio Holmes made an acrobatic catch to give the Steelers a touchdown clinching the win -- a record-breaking number six Super Bowl win. The team has now passed up Dallas and San Francisco who have both won five.

Holmes proudly held up the Vince Lombardi Trophy after being named Most Valuable Player of the game. Back on the streets of Pittsburgh, however, things got a bit out of hand. Several fires, some large in size, set by Steelers fans kept firefighters busy into the morning hours.

Police also had to deal with the thousands of fans who spilled out onto the streets after the Steelers defeated the Arizona Cardinals 27-23 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.

Many arrests and minor injuries have also been reported. In some areas of the city police formed human barricade lines, patrolled on horseback or roamed the unruly crowds with police dogs.
