1987 Steelers 13 vs Seahawks 9

The Steelers turn back the clock, using a punishing ground game and a strong defense to beat Seattle and move into a 1st-place tie with Houston and Cleveland. Pittsburgh rushes for 209 yds, including 106 yds on 22 carries by Frank Pollard, who scores the winning TD on an 11-yd run in the 4th quarter. While the Steelers play a clean game, the Seahawks suffer 2 costly 2nd-half turnovers and a botched an extra-point, forcing Seattle to have to go for a TD late in the game rather than a tying field goal. Seattle leads 9-6 and is driving late in the 3rd when Bryan Hinkle recovers a fumble at the Steeler 19. The Steelers then drive 81 yds in 14 plays, capped by Pollard's game-winner on a trap up the middle on the first play of the 4th quarter. Delton Hall picks of Dave Krieg on Seattle's next possession and after a Pittsburgh punt, the Seahawks fail on 4th and 17 and the Steelers muscle down the clock. A special thanks to Jay Korber for generously providing this game.

After suffering through the Malone years, I hope and pray that we don't experience the same garbage at QB after Ben retires.

Yeah, that's my biggest fear... another 21 years of wandering in the desert between QBs. And I know that's a possibility. 

That's why it's so important that we go get another Lombardi NOW while we still have a future Hall of Famer under center to do it.

One thing I will note from this game, it is quite weird to hear the name Curt Warner and not think of the great QB. I remember CW being one of the greatest RB's in Penn State history and bringing home a national championship. Still glad the Steelers won this game.
