Two of those games were in the playoffs, and both were memorable. After jumping ahead to a 21-3 lead, the Steelers were on the wrong side of QB Peyton Manning's awesome offense, allowing two touchdowns and a two point conversion after the most famous fumble in Steelers history.
It led to the most famous missed field goal in Colts history, and one of the most exciting playoff games ever played.
In January of 1996, Captain Comeback, Jim Harbaugh, led the plucky Colts to a near upset at Three Rivers Stadium in the AFC Championship game,
