Top 12 Greatest Wins in Steelers' History (Non-Super Bowl)

We're two weeks into the new NFL season and our attention is squarely on the impressive early work done by the 2-0 Pittsburgh Steelers. Before we get back to recapping and discussing Pittsburgh's 19-11 victory over the Tennesee Titans on Sunday, let's revisit maryrose's outstanding countdown of the 12 Greatest (Non-Super Bowl) Wins In Steelers History. I encourage new readers to enjoy maryrose's fine writing, as well as to check out his recently published book, From Black To Gold: The Pittsburgh Steelers, which drew rave reviews from the likes of Rocky Bleier, Dick Hoak and even Art Rooney Jr.

For those who haven't seen any of these posts, a word from the author about the selection process which he included at the beginning of every piece. - Michael Bean -

This series has highlighted my Top 12 Greatest Wins in Pittsburgh Steelers' history.  I do not include Super Bowls, as they would eat up half the series!  Please keep in mind that these wins are not necessarily the most important wins.  If that were the case, then only the deepest playoff wins would be recounted.  Sometimes "importance" is a factor, but not always.  Sometimes the underdog factor comes into play and sometimes the comeback factor is the reason for a game being selected where it is. Sometimes it is just the way the game unfolded.  In any case, this is just one person's opinion, so there is no right and wrong, just fun.  Enjoy. - maryrose-
