"Oh S#@t" Super Bowl Plays of the Millennium (So Far)
In anticipation of Sunday’s potential classic, here are eight bona fide highlights.

James Harrison 100-yard pick-six (Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Arizona Cardinals, Super Bowl XLIII)
In one of the most inconceivable plays in Super Bowl history, Harrison, Pittsburgh’s hard-hitting (and heavily fined) middle linebacker, picked off a red zone pass from Kurt Warner at the goal line and then did the unthinkablereturned it for a Super Bowl record 100-yard touchdown. The score ended the first half, and the timing couldn’t have been better for the winded warrior; Harrison was seen sucking on an oxygen mask after returning to the sideline. The play was a very memorable highlight from a Super Bowl filled with them, and Harrison was even parodied on an episode of Saturday Night Live.
