VIDEO: Hines Ward Scores Touchdown In Super Bowl XLV (Which Won't Be His Last Game)

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Hines Wardperhaps the NFL's greatest Georgia Bulldogs star, scored Pittsburgh's first touchdown of Super Bowl XLV last night. It might've been just about the most critical touchdown all year for the Steelers, as they were staring down the barrel of a 21-3 halftime deficit otherwise. Ward made a great move to free himself of coverage as the ball was in the air, finding himself wide open.

As you can see, he also made a fine catch on a previous play to set up his own touchdown. Though Pittsburgh lost Ward had a good game, totaling 78 yards on seven catches -- while being thrown to almost half as many times as Mike Wallace, who saw 16 throws come his way. Ward wasn't responsible for either of those interceptions or that fumble, so it's not hard to say he did everything he could to help his team win last night.

Oh, and after the game he announced he won't be retiring this offseason. So there you go.
