This is routine for the Steelers, who have this blot thing down pat. Can they ruin the perfect season of the Indianapolis Colts tomorrow night? Ho-hum stuff.

The Steelers have to go all the way back to, oh, last season for the last time the Steelers helped the old Dolphins in Miami raise their champagne glasses. Not once, but twice in a row the Steelers laid to waste a team's unbeaten record when they stuffed the New England Patriots (6-0) and Philadelphia Eagles (7-0) in consecutive games at Heinz Field in 2004.

You have to dig deeper, though, for a time when the Steelers played the kind of spoilsports they hope to repeat tomorrow night in Indianapolis. Back to 1984 when a rag-tag outfit under Chuck Noll traveled to San Francisco to meet such a daunting task.

The mighty 49ers of Joe Montana were unbeaten after six games, a dynasty in the making and winners of the Super Bowl three years earlier. The Steelers were 3-3 with a mix of aging stars from their Super Bowl years and young players that would not see the playoffs again for five years.

As is the case of the one-touchdown underdogs heading for Indianapolis, their ancestors were heavy underdogs going to San Francisco.
