Default What was your favorite Steelers game you've seen?

Hey guys!

I just wanted to see what everyone's favorite game experience was? Was it the superbowl game, a game in the snow, or something else?

I haven't been able to afford to see a game in-person yet but I'm trying to save up some money to go. Let me know your experience and what I'm missing. Hopefully it'll provide some motivation...

one of my favorite games was that playoff game a few years back when Bettis fumbled at the end zone and Ben made the shoe-string saving tackle. What an exciting game.

I've only been to two steelers games both at heinz field. The packers game last year when wallace caught the game winning catch at the end of the game, and this years bungles game when troy got two picks. Id have to say seeing wallace make that santonio like catch was better cuz all those cheeseheads thought they had it wrapped up.

By far this was the most exciting game I have seen in Pittsburgh and Ive had season tickets since Heinz Field opened. This game was incredible watching live at Heinz. I cant remember hearing the stadium any louder since that day !!!!!

Maddox leads Steelers all the way back

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- The Cleveland Browns never have gotten over The Drive by John Elway. Now they've got to live with The Comeback by the quarterback who was once supposed to be the next Elway.

Chris Fuamatu-Ma'afala
Chris Fuamatu-Ma'afala scores the winning touchdown for the Steelers with 54 seconds left.
Tommy Maddox, the NFL's Comeback Player of the Year, led one of Pittsburgh's greatest comebacks by throwing three touchdown passes in the final 19 minutes as the Steelers rallied from a 17-point deficit to stun the Browns 36-33 Sunday in an AFC wild-card game.

Chris Fuamatu-Ma'afala's 3-yard touchdown run with 54 seconds left secured the Steelers' most dramatic come-from-behind playoff victory since Franco Harris' Immaculate Reception against Oakland in 1972.

They trailed 17-7 at the half, 24-7 in the third quarter and 33-21 with just over 10 minutes remaining.

"Tommy brought the whole team together at halftime and told us what we were going to do,'' wide receiver Terance Mathis said. "He said if you don't think we're going to win this game, you need to go back into the locker room.''

The Steelers denied the Browns their first road playoff victory since 1969 and their first playoff win of any kind since returning to the NFL in 1999. They also gave themselves a huge momentum lift going into Saturday's divisional game at second-seeded Tennessee.

The Jets, shutout winners Saturday over the Colts, play Sunday at top-seeded Oakland.

"I was already in Oakland,'' Kevin Johnson said, referring to the Browns' opponent if they had won.

For the Browns, it was an eerie flashback to Elway's memorable 98-yard "The Drive'' to beat the Browns for Denver in the 1987 AFC championship game. Remarkably, Denver drafted Maddox five years later to replace Elway.

Maddox later shuttled among four NFL teams without finding work before becoming the Steelers' starter earlier this season, 10 years after making his last NFL start.

"I was very fortunate to play behind John Elway and see all the things he was able to do in games we did not think we had a chance to win,'' said Maddox, who was 30-of-48 for 367 yards and two interceptions.

Afterward, Steelers coach Bill Cowher, disappointed at home so often before in the playoffs, threw his cap, jumped up and down and yelled in a stadium runway.

"It's one of those wins you can't see happening, but you just keep hoping it will keep going the way it's going,'' Cowher said of the frantic comeback.

The Steelers were shredded all afternoon by Kelly Holcomb, who threw for 429 yards and three touchdowns, and trailed 24-7 until Maddox's 6-yard touchdown pass to Plaxico Burress with 3:50 left in the third quarter.

"But I can't say how many times I must have said, 'We've got time. We have time, so don't panic,''' offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey said. "I never felt there was a panic button pushed by anyone.''

Except the Browns.

Their game-long inability to run the ball -- rookie William Green ran 25 times for just 30 yards -- proved their undoing.

"This is going to hurt. This burns inside,'' Browns receiver Dennis Northcutt said. "It's going to be very hard to move on.''

Mostly because the Browns won't be moving on.

Unable to wind the clock down, the Browns were forced to throw on almost every down, and, once the Steelers' defense tightened up, that left Pittsburgh the time to come back.

Still, even after the comeback began, the Browns had enough left to drive for Phil Dawson's 24-yard field goal and Holcomb's 22-yard touchdown pass to Andre Davis that made it 33-21.

But the Steelers, who have lost four home playoff games under Cowher since 1992, were confident they could come back after rallying from 11 down in the fourth quarter against Baltimore only last week.

Maddox gave the Steelers a chance, leading a 77-yard drive that ended with his 5-yard scoring pass to Hines Ward with 3:06 left, cutting the deficit to 33-28.

Even then, the Browns needed only a first down or two to run it out.

"I don't think anybody in the building thought we weren't going to win,'' Holcomb said. "I think everybody thought we were going to go on.''

But Northcutt, who had made big play after big play with two scoring catches and a long punt return, couldn't hold onto a throw from Holcomb on third-and-12 and the Browns punted.

"I just dropped it, plain and simple,'' Northcutt said.

With Pittsburgh in a score-or-go home situation, Maddox found Plaxico Burress for 24 yards, Hines Ward for 10, Burress again for 17 and Ward for 7. Fuamatu-Ma'afala, filling the role Jerome Bettis usually plays when he's not hurting with a sore knee, then powered up the middle from the 3 to score.

The game ended with Holcomb's 16-yard completion to Andre King at the Steelers 29 as the Browns couldn't get into range for a possible tying field goal.

Until Maddox took over, it was all Holcomb in a remarkable performance by a quarterback starting only his fourth NFL game, for a team that is 0-8 in road playoff games since 1969.

Holcomb, subbing for the injured Tim Couch, had no running game for support, not a single minute of playoff experience -- and no fear. Only Bernie Kosar, who threw for 489 yards in 1987 against Jets, has thrown for more yards in a Browns playoff game.

Holcomb, one of the most inexperienced quarterbacks to start an NFL playoff game, had completions of 83, 32, 29, 15 and 43 yards against a secondary weakened by injuries to cornerback Chad Scott and safety Mike Logan.

Holcomb needed almost no time to get Cleveland going, finding Kevin Johnson behind safety Brent Alexander for an 83-yard completion to the 1 on the third play from scrimmage.

Green, coming off a 187-yard game against Atlanta, scored on the next play, one of his few positive-yardage runs of the day, and just like that, it was 7-0 Browns with 1:16 gone.

Pittsburgh, troubled by turnovers all season, later turned it over three times in a span of 5 minutes, twice on interceptions by Daylon McCutcheon, but only rookie Antwaan Randle El's fumbled punt was turned into points: Northcutt's 32-yard scoring catch that made it 14-0.

Randle El made up for his mistake with a 66-yard punt return touchdown, but Cleveland answered with Dawson's 31-yard field goal for a 17-7 lead.

Of course, the Browns should have known it would go down to the final minute, as did 12 of their 16 regular-season games. They won only six.

"I can't believe this. I just can't believe this happened to us,'' Earl Little said.

Game notes
Until Sunday, the Steelers' biggest postseason comeback was from a seven-point deficit in a 24-17 win at Denver in December 1984. ... The Steelers were 0-5 when trailing at halftime. ... All three Browns-Steelers games were decided by three points -- all Steelers victories. ... The Steelers are the 10th team to beat an opponent twice in the season and again in the playoffs. Five teams failed to sweep. ... Cleveland's 6-2 road record tied Tampa Bay for the NFL's best.

Superbowl 43. Every time I see those commercials of people celebrating a play in the Superbowl I flash back to the scene at my place and the celebration that happened after that play and game. I wish I could relive that day at least once a week.
