A controversial Wayne Rooney penalty was enough to secure Manchester United's record-breaking 19th league title at Ewood Park.
The point was enough to clinch a 12th Premier League title for manager Sir Alex Ferguson on an afternoon of high drama at Blackburn.
United looked to be heading for defeat until Rovers keeper Paul Robinson was ruled to have brought down Javier Herndandez and the visitors were awarded a penalty.
Rooney kept his nerve to fire home the spot-kick and send United's army of supporters into a title frenzy.
Blackburn had taken a first-half lead through Brett Emerton after a mix-up in the United defence involving stand-in goalkeeper Thomas Kuszczak.
But Rooney's 73rd-minute equalising penalty was enough to spark scenes of celebration as United gained the point to take them beyond the challenge of Chelsea in the title race.
