Pittsburgh Steelers Individual and Team Postseason Stats, Trends and Facts

To some fun, quick-hitting facts, figures and trends about the Pittsburgh Steelers as we inch close to their Saturday afternoon showdown with the rival Baltimore Ravens.

  • Pittsburgh's 31 postseason wins are the 2nd-most in NFL history (Cowboys, 33).
  • The Steelers have a 14-8 (.636) record in the Divisional Round.
  • Steelers are 18-9 (.667) record at home during playoffs.
  • Ben Roethlisberger is 8-2 (.800) in postseason play and has completed 172 of 278 passes (61.9 %) for 2,239 passing yards,15 TDs, 12 INTs, and an 87.2 QB rating. 
  • Rashard Mendenhall (1,273 rush yards, 13 rush TDs) joined Willie Parker (1,494 rush yards, 13 rush TDs in '06) as only Steelers w/ 1,200+ rush yards and at least 13 rush TDs in season.
  • Hines Ward (76) needs 1 catch to surpass Hall of Famer Thurman Thomas for 5th-most receptions in playoff history.
  • Mike Wallace (7) tied Hall of Famer John Stallworth (7 in '84) for most 100-yard receiving games in season in Steelers history. Wallace had career-best in catches (60), receiving yards (1,257) & TDs (10). The second-year speedster out of Ole Miss also looks to extend his consecutive game streak with 100-plus receiving yards to four.
  • Heath Miller has 2 TD catches in 3 home postseason games.
  • Maurkice Pouncey became 1st Steelers rookie center to start all of his team's games.
  • The Steelers have not allowed 100-yard rusher in 14 consecutive postseason games, tied w/ Bal. for 2nd-longest current streak (Redskins, 17).
  • Steelers allowed NFL-low 62.8 rushing yards per game this season, 5th-fewest rushing yards allowed per game in NFL history.
  • James Harrison became 1st Steeler to post double-digit sacks in 3 consecutive seasons (16 in 2008; 10 in 2009; 10.5 in 2010).
  • LaMarr Woodley has 8 sacks in 4 career postseason games, and at least two sacks in all four of his postseason appearances. Incredible. And how huge would it be if Woodley could extend that streak for at least another game?
  • James Farrior had 6 sacks this season, the second-most of career (6.5 in '07). Farrior has five  sacks and two interceptions in his 10 postseason games, but he registered neither during the Steelers' SB XLIII run in '08.
