Many football fans consider this 100-yard interception return by James Harrison to be the greatest play in Super Bowl history. The return helped the Steelers defeat the Cardinals, 27-23, to win their sixth Super Bowl. Harrison has been in the news this week, but not for the best of reasons. His helmet-to-facemask hit on Browns quarterback Colt McCoy last Thursday resulted in a one-game suspension from the league. Harrison is the first player to miss game time as a penalty under the league’s revamped policy on such collisions. (Heinz Kluetmeier/SI)
