Our journey in the BTSC Delorean to Steeler yesterday begins in a time when Robin Williams and Flubber bounced to the top of the movie box office, Sugar Ray’s “Fly” was hot on the radio and “Cities For Life Day” helped citizens of 300 world cities oppose the death penalty.

Meanwhile the Pittsburgh Steelers were trying to keep their playoff hopes alive in a place that was all too unfriendly to them in 1997...the road. At 8-4, Bill Cowher’s Steelers had only won twice away from Three Rivers Stadium. After losing a game they were supposed to win in Philadelphia the week before, the Steelers were at a crucial juncture, tied atop the division with Jacksonville who already won on the day. Their foe was a 3-9 Arizona who had lost seven of their games decided in the final minute and four that went into Overtime. Couple it with being in a city that they have lost all three times they visited, including Super Bowl XXX...the Steelers needed to win badly.

Welcome to November 30, 1997.

Flash back to that awesome classic on the Steelers Retro Show and join BTSC’s Tony Defeo and Bryan Anthony Davis as they go back in time and relive this memorable matchup.
