Default Steelers-Browns 2003 Playoff - NFL Network July 5

NFL Network has been replaying broadcasts of classic NFL playoff games in their entirety.

This Thursday at 8-11 pm is the January 2003 Steelers-Browns game, which the Steelers won 36-33 in the last minute after being down 24-7.

Kendrell Bell had an awesome game on a bum ankle and Tommy Maddox had his last great game as a Steeler. Neither ever played as well again.

IMO this game & comeback is what prompted Cowher to ditch smash mouth ball control for the horrible 2003 season.

I remember that game well Dan. Tommy single almost singlehandedly kept us in that game. He was not only playing against the Clowns secondary,....but the Clowns in our own defensive backfield as well. LOL

I also remember not only Kendrell but the rest of the backers having a great game. (especially against the run)

But one thing that always sticks out to me about that game was what i felt was Gildon almost conceding defeat with his comments of,... "But you couldn't run on us though" to some Browns players. (or something very close to that effect)

yeh..Dan, your right. Then look what happened to our team the very next season...not a good idea I dont think. Unless you bring in a west coast coach or something. I love the memories of this game, and it pretty much was Maddoxs' shining moment in the NFL. I love watching that wide open offensive games, they are fun to watch, but I dont want to depend on that to lead our team.

On the commercial advertising it, they showed the Browns and Raiders logos and said it was the Steelers. XD

Anyway, I faintly remember this game, as I wasn't into the NFL much back then...I really started getting obsessed with the NFL in the late 2003 season.

That play-off game is one of the best NFL games I have ever seen........That was a great comeback......Didn't Chris Fuamatu-Ma'afala score the go ahead TD? Plus another huge play in that game was Northcut's drop on third down for the Brownies that would have gave the Browns a first down......Basically sealing the win for the Browns....Both secondaries were just a flat out joke in that game......

Too bad NFL Network screwed me over and moved to a different channel. I don't get to see it.

If NFL Network moved on your cable channel line-up I do not think that was the NFL's idea - the NFL and the cable companies are fighting over whether NFL Network gets carried on basic as opposed to an additonal fee tier of channels. The Big Ten is in the same fight with Comcast over a sports channel the Big Ten is launching.

Our Secondary was terrible in that game, then again, so was the Clowns'.

That was a spectacular game. We were down 24-7, the Browns fans were all taunting and chanting, high-fiving each other, and waving their foam fingers and stupid plastic bones, then poof.

That was Tommy Maddox's highest moment in Pittsburgh. Too bad it wouldn't last. Still, it was a very satisfying game. The Cleveland Browns suck, and always will suck.

I lost my voice over that game. My most lasting memory was how bad our secondary was. It seemed like anyone could beat them deep.
