1984 AFC Championship Steelers 28 at Dolphins 45

The Cinderella Steelers pile up 455 yds of offense and hang tough early, taking a 14-10 late in the 2nd quarter following a stunning 65-yd TD bomb to Stallworth. But the Marino-led Dolphins prove to be too much, amassing a whopping 569 yds of offense and racking up 45 points. Not surprisingly, Dan Marino plays a phenomenal game, hitting 21 of 32 for an AFC Championship record 421 yds and 4 TDs. Malone also puts up big numbers -- hitting 20 of 26 for 312 yds and 3 TDs -- but also throws 3 crucial INTs. The aerial output in this game is ridiculous. Duper finishes the game with 5 catches for 148 yds and 2 TDs. Clayton catches 4 for 95 yds and a score. Nathan rushes for 61 yds and a TD while also catching 8 passes for 114 yds. And the ageless John Stallworth catches 4 passes for 111 yds and 2 TDs in the final postseason game of his Hall of Fame career. A special thanks to Jay Korber for providing this game!

From my perspective, I still think this was a remarkable season for the Pittsburgh Steelers even though the season didn't end well. A team that was going through a transition period, losing most of their players to retirement still held their own and somehow made it to the AFC Championship Game. I don't know of any other team, that could have done that in the same set of circumstances.

The Steelers were going to have to play the game of their lives to win! Too much Marino. The Steelers thru everything they had at the Miami Dolphins. Wasn't enough! Good season for the Steelers thou!
