Nevertheless, the Steeler won't be able to hold Arizona down forever. The simple fact is that you cannot game plan for Larry Fitzgerald. His athletic ability will always trump your scheme. Once or twice Warner will get the time he needs for Fitzgerald to get open, and a Cardinal comeback will start to look plausible. However, the Arizona D, which has been playing over it's head all post season, will finally give up the big run that they can't afford or blow a coverage that allows Santonio Holmes to get deep. When Arizona tries to get the points it needs on one final drive, Pittsburgh's D will shut the door.
Final Score: Pittsburgh 24, Arizona 17. Dan's playoff prediction comes to pass (mostly) with the Steelers walking off as champs.
