2005 Steelers 18 at Vikings 3

In another must-win game for Pittsburgh, the Steeler defense holds the Vikings to only 3 points in 4 red zone possessions thanks to a pair of first half Brad Johnson interceptions (Joey Porter and DeShea Townsend) and a blocked field-goal attempt (von Oelhoffen) on the first drive of the 3rd quarter. Big Ben, playing with broken right thumb, throws only 15 times, completing 10 for 149 yards and running for the game's only touchdown, a 3-yard scramble and stretch over the left pylon. Ben's score was set up by Antwaan Randle El's blazing 72-yd punt return down the right sideline just before halftime. Minnesota never threatens again after the missed FG as the Steeler defense demolishes the Vikings running game (54 yds) and permits only 25 yards of total offense in the second half.

I said at a Minnesota Irish Pub after the game "I could see us winning out and winning the Super Bowl"

My friend Will says: "You're insane"

That was another fun trip.
