The Steelers have played 57 playoff games in franchise history, second only to the Dallas Cowboys, winning a league-best 34, tied with Dallas. It’s incredible to think that Pittsburgh, with six world championships in eight Super Bowl appearances, have actually played in more Conference Championship games (15) than Wild Card games (10). Pittsburgh won and lost five of those and only hosted five Wild Card-round games ever. Check out the definitive ranking of those ten appearances, from worst to best. P.S. This is a Very Important #SquishTheFish Poll you should immediately take over on Twitter.
We don't want to jinx it, but don't worry. Pittsburgh is better than they were last time they faced Miami, on both offense and defense, while the Dolphins aren’t anything like what they were once Ryan Tannehill went down with an injury. Also, we've discovered The Plan that will get the Steelers to the Super Bowl. *Drumroll, please.* Stop the run. Run the ball. Win. You're welcome, Ben.
