PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Steelers have received their Super Bowl XLIII rings, four months after beating the Arizona Cardinals 27-23 for the franchise's record sixth championship.

The rings were presented at a private ceremony Tuesday night at Heinz Field. The ring's design was kept confidential until then.

Each player received a ring with his name and number on it.

On Monday, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said he was excited about receiving his ring, but that it will mark the end of the 2008 season. Now, he says, it's time to focus on the 2009 season.
