Steelers edge Cardinals for sixth Super Bowl win

TAMPA, Florida (Reuters) - The Pittsburgh Steelers captured their record sixth Super Bowl by defeating the upset-minded Arizona Cardinals 27-23 Sunday on a dramatic touchdown pass to Santonio Holmes with 35 seconds left.

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger drove the Steelers 78 yards in eight plays and found Holmes on a six-yard scoring strike in the far corner of the end zone to provide the winning margin.

Holmes, the game's most valuable player, caught nine passes, including four in the final drive.

"I want the ball in my hands no matter what, no matter where it is," Holmes said he told Roethlisberger before the final drive.

"I wanted to be the one to make the play."

Pittsburgh was cruising 20-7 in the final quarter before the Cardinals made a late charge under the guidance of gritty veteran quarterback Kurt Warner.

Larry Fitzgerald caught a one-yard pass from Warner to trim the lead to 20-14 with less than seven minutes remaining. A safety with three minutes left then pulled the Cardinals to within four points on a chilly night at Raymond James Stadium.

Warner then hit Fitzgerald on a short post pattern, the All-Pro speedster finding the end zone virtually untouched to give Arizona a stunning 23-20 lead with 2:37 left.

Roethlisberger then took over, guiding the Steelers to the game-winning drive. For the game, he completed 21 of 30 passes for 256 yards, one touchdown and an interception.

Prior to the Steelers' final drive, Roethlisberger said he told his team mates: "It's now or never. You'll be remembered forever if you do this."

BITTER LOSS

The loss was bitter for the Cardinals, who were making their first Super Bowl appearance.

"It is always disappointing when you are leading late in the game," said Warner, a 37-year-old veteran and a former Super Bowl MVP with the St. Louis Rams.

The Cardinals were 9-7 this season before breezing through the playoffs with upset wins over Atlanta, Carolina and Philadelphia.

"We made it to a place that no one thought we would be," added Warner. "No one expected us to be here.

"Obviously you want to win but we took the best in the league down to the wire. They had to make great plays to win. I am proud we gave ourselves a chance to win."

The late drama came in stark contrast to Pittsburgh's early dominance that culminated in a stunning play at the end of the first half when linebacker James Harrison returned an interception a Super Bowl record 100 yards for a 17-7 lead.

With Arizona on the Steelers' one-yard line and looking to take a lead into the locker room, Harrison stepped in front of Cardinals receiver Anquan Boldin and intercepted Warner's pass on the goal line.

The NFL's Defensive Player of the Year rumbled down the sideline, breaking several tackles along the way, and stumbled into the end zone as time expired to close the opening half.

"It was very tiring but it was worth it," Harrison said of his touchdown, the longest in a Super Bowl.

"I was just thinking that I had to do whatever I could to get to the other end zone and get seven."

After the game Pittsburgh head coach Mike Tomlin received a congratulatory call from U.S. President Barack Obama.

"That's been our story all year," said Tomlin, at 36 the youngest coach to win a Super Bowl.

"We've got a team that doesn't blink in the face of adversity.

"They've got a great deal of resolve and it was put on display. We simply do not care about style points."

The triumph marked Pittsburgh's second title in four years and gave the Steelers one more Super Bowl victory than the San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys.

The government of the Northern Territory of Australia is now running "mandatory supervised" COVID-19 quarantine facilities, and there are a lot of conflicting reports going around about what's really happening in these "camps." Are they internment camps, summer vacation spots, or something in between?

On "The Glenn Beck Program" Monday, Glenn and Producer Stu Burguiere discussed the case of 26-year-old Australian resident Hayley Hodgson, who detailed her experience at the Center of National Resilience in Howard Springs during a recent interview with UnHerd. They compared Hodgson's description of the Howard Springs facility to images of bikini-clad Australians in quarantine who appear to be on holiday at the same facility.

So, what's really going on with Australia's COVID quarantine facilities? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Stu break down what we know so far:

Glenn Beck: Here's how YOU can fix the Great Reset's housing crisis

How's the housing market looking these days? Because under Build Back Better (aka the Great Reset), investors are grabbing up homes at a record pace.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn discussed a recent Redfin News report, which shows that almost one in five homes sold in the U.S. during the third quarter of 2021 was purchased by an investment firm, and many are paying tens of thousands of dollars over the asking price.

"Think of that, one in every five homes that are sold are going to a big investment firm," Glenn said. "Investors bought more than 90,000 homes, totaling more than $63 billion, representing 18% of all homes sold in the quarter. The numbers broke all records."

"The same factors have pushed more Americans to rent, which also creates opportunities for investors, because investors typically turn the homes they purchase into rentals," he continued. "And now they can charge higher rents. Rent for single-family homes surged by more than 10% in the 12 months, through September. The fastest annual rent inflation in 16 years."

"And nearly 77% purchased were bought in an all-cash transaction," Glenn added. "That's not your average person. These investment firms, like BlackRock, are going in and buying entire neighborhoods. They are the people that come in, and say, 'I'll give you $70,000 over the asking price.' ... Now, why would investment firms think they will just be able to make money paying $70,000 over the asking price? What is it that they know, that you don't know? Could they know, as the Great Reset states, that by 2030, you will own nothing and you'll like it?"

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck exposes the radical plan to flip the United States from capitalism to socialism and into a lawless nation. It's an old strategy that mirrors a communist Cold War playbook. The goal now, as it was then, is this: How do they get a revolution without all that civil war stuff? It’s a five-step plan, and we're deep into several of the main steps RIGHT NOW.

Our justice system has been infiltrated by woke leftists, and something called "the progressive prosecutor movement" is methodically transforming Main Street USA into Main Street Gotham City. We can see it all over the country in places like San Francisco, with the Waukesha massacre as a terrifying glimpse into more of what's coming. And the media? They're currently running interference in one of the largest misinformation operations in history.

It’s happening at the city, state, AND federal levels. And President Trump might be one of the biggest victims of them all, a fact that even Trump critic Joe Rogan has realized on the Russia collusion hoax: “No one is being held accountable!” That ends now, as Glenn calls on Americans to push back on the lies that keep us divided in a cold civil war.

A "one-world government" is being formed right now and it’s called the Great Reset, Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. And now, rebuild plans for the fire-damaged Notre Dame Cathedral hint at the formation of a global church, too.

In this clip, Glenn detailed plans for the iconic, 850-year-old church’s "woke" renovations that sound more like a 'politically correct Disneyland' complete with a "discovery trail," "emotional spaces," and 14 themed chapels.

"Notre Dame is now being built back better as a 'woke theme park' dedicated to environmentalism and social justice," Glenn explained.

"There will be several different chapels within, [for example] a chapel for social justice, and then chapel for environmental justice," he continued. "Which leads me to this point. The 'one-world government' is being formed, right now. One-world government. It is being formed and it's called The Great Reset."

Glenn went on to predict that one of the first steps in the direction of a one-world government will be a push for a global religion.

"I think we're seeing the first church now being dedicated to the new global religion — and it is social justice, environmental justice, and all this gobbledygook. We all know, it's not just wrong, it is dangerous. That's the first church, the cathedral of Notre Dame, in France, is the first global church. Mark my words. Christian, Jews, Muslims ... this global church will bring darkness unlike you've ever seen."
