100 Things Steelers Fans Should Know

Five Steelers plays that will go down in NFL history

Super Bowl Trickery Football

 

Antwaan Randle-El pass to Hines Ward

In a play called “Fake-39 Toss X-Reverse Pass”, Steelers receiver Antwaan Randle El heard Ben Roethlisberger tell him he’d block the defensive end, giving Randle El an opportunity he’d dreamed of – throwing a touchdown pass.  “It’s one thing to throw a touchdown in the regular season,” Randle El told talk show host Jimmy Kimmel, “but the Super Bowl? Wow. Wow!”

When Randle El took the ball, he faked the reverse and threw on the run to a wide-open Hines Ward on a deep crossing route.  “As soon as I let go, I was like, ooooh, catch it!” said Randle El.  “And Hines did.”  The play would ultimately be the play that would hold the Seattle Seahawks to a score of 10 to the Steelers’ score of 21.  Seahawks defensive backs Marquand Manuel and Andre Dyson had been anticipating another reverse – one that had been performed by Ward earlier in the game.  By honing in on that experience, Randle El was able to become the first receiver in Super Bowl history to throw a touchdown pass.
