The last Steelers blocked punt that I remember came against the Chiefs on Monday Night Football...I can't remember if it was the 96 or 98 season...But Mike Tomczak was the starting QB for the Steelers in that game I believe...I also don't remember the played that blocked the punt....I have no idea who the last Steeler was to block a field goal...

I remember the blocked punt....I know it was against the Chiefs and it was on Monday Night Football.....It was in the 96 or 98 season...I just don't remember who blocked that damn punt...lol I don't recall any other blocked punt by a Steeler since.....I might have forgotten about one though...

I can't recall seeing a Steeler blocking a field goal in my lifetime....I was born in 79 so I don't go way back....

The Dolphins' best scoring chance came early in the fourth quarter when they moved to the Steelers' 20. Jay Feely's field-goal attempt was blocked, but there was a delay-of-game penalty before the kick.


Can't find a play by play that says who it was that blocked it--maybe someone else can. But at least that's the last game it happened in--even though it ended up not counting...what a shame :duh:So to find one that counted, some more digging would have to be done to find it.

When was the last time the Steelers blocked a punt and scored a TD?/1998 at Kansas City Lance Brown blocked the punt and Fred McAfee returned it one yard for a TD.



Now that says blocked AND returned for a TD...so I'm not sure if there's another time when it WASN'T returned for a TD, but that's as good as I can do tonight, especially as tired as I am :yesnod:

I don't know what the answer to the question is, but the question brought back memories. I swear this is true. At a young age I found an adult magazine in a state park. In the middle of it was Steelers pics. of a blocked punt. I think it was a super bowl and I think it was Dwight White. This is really a memory. I know this is correct.
