Super Bowl - Cardinals defence

Arizona's defence was unspectacular for much of the year but has come into its own over the last few weeks in three post-season wins.

They intercepted Carolina quarterback Jake Delhomme six times during the second round of the play-offs, and harried Philadelphia's Donovan McNabb a week later.

"Clancy Prendergast, their defensive coordinator, has called some great games in the post-season," says Woodson.

And he believes if defensive ends Antonio Smith (top right, 92) and Bertrand Berry (bottom right, 94) can put pressure on Roethlisberger, the Cardinals have a good chance.

"If they can get after Ben and make him throw the ball area that is a key for them," Woodson explains.

Strong safety Adrian Wilson (bottom left, 24) is a strong all-round player and linebacker Karlos Dansby (top left, 58) led the team in tackles this year with 95.
