The 2018 season appeared to be full of promise for the Pittsburgh Steelers back in September and few could have envisaged a year that would end without the playoffs. Now faced with the prospect of watching the New England Patriots play the Los Angeles Rams in a Super Bowl that many hoped to see the Steelers in, it would be understandable if there were a number of Pittsburgh fans opting to sit out the season finale on Sunday.
For those looking to take part in the spirit of the festivities this weekend, but without being subjected to the Patriots, we have an alternative selection of games for consideration that should make much better viewing instead when Super Bowl LIII kicks off.
With a link to all six Pittsburgh Super Bowl victories, barring the first half of Super Bowl XL for some reason, we can offer you a far more enjoyable viewing experience for Sunday night.
Super Bowl IX:
Super Bowl X:
Super Bowl XIII:
Super Bowl XIV:
Super Bowl XL (Second half only plus America Game for 2005):
Super Bowl XLIII:
If a halftime show featuring Maroon 5, Travis Scott and Big Boi does not have you suitably inspired, we have a selection of some of the greatest halftime shows in Super Bowl history to pick from.
Such as Beyonce (great show):
U2 (one of my favorites and I don’t really like them):
Prince (one of the best):
Diana Ross (insane staging):
Madonna (meh, it’s ok):
or Bruce Springsteen (if you want to recreate the full Super XLIII experience):
For those who were going to watch the game just for the adverts, we have a preview of some of the commercials that will be airing this year:
Or some of the best in Super Bowl history:
And two of the best of all-time:
So now if you end up watching Super Bowl LIII and finish the night frustrated that you saw the Patriots tie the Steelers record with their sixth victory, you really only have yourself to blame.
