Some of our most memorable Steeler moments involve great “one-on-one” plays. Times where the game was on the line and a Steeler was head to head in a battle to make a play, and ended up coming out on top. Here are some that we’ve come up with over on the forums. Think about some of the great ones that you recall…
- From DarthMonk: In Super Bowl XIV the Steelers trailed the Rams 19-17 and faced a 3rd and 8 from their own 27. Bradshaw took the snap, faked a handoff, and then threw a pass to Stallworth who beat Rod Perry on a streak pattern. Stallworth took it all the way to the end zone for a 73-yard go-ahead touchdown to make the score 24-19 for the Steelers.
- From Phenomal TJ: Roethlisberger/Harper was a good one on one moment. – The Tackle.
- Polamalu’s diving pick of Phillip Rivers in the playoffs a few years ago was nice.
So was his pick against Peyton Manning that got ruled an incompletion, because the officials were taking a smoke break at the time.
- From JPele: Bettis takes a handoff runs left and is heading out of bounds when he spots Ray Lewis, Jerome then heads up field lowers his shoulder and plows into Lewis and goes another 5 yards.
- From BRC: Roethlisberger about to get sacked by Suggs, in the 2009 season I believe it was. Suggs was hanging all over Ben and he managed to get away just enough to throw it out of bounds to save field position.
- Ryan Clark’s hits on McGahee & Welker – moments of beauty.
- Norm Johnson epic pile drive tackle.
- From some of our Facebook friends: Terry Bradshaws TD pass to John Stalworth that broke the rams back in superbowl 14. thats a classic.
Ben’s touchdown pass to Holmes at the last minute in the corner of the endzone in the Super Bowl !!
Lynn Swanns amazing superbowl catch.
- James Harrison’s interception return vs the Cardinals. Not really one on one, more like 1 on 11 but Harrison survived that long run to score the TD.
- Ben to Holmes vs the Ravens for the one of the most controversial TD catches in NFL history. Did the ball cross the plain? Yes it did, barely.
