You might not know it but Jacksonville and Pittsburg have a storied history of exciting games. Before I dive into pre-game match-ups and what not, I figured that it might be interesting to look back at a couple of those games.
Joe Starkey at the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review has a nice review of the wild times of games past. He brings up some of my favorite moments.
4 games stand out to me that deserve mention. Conveniently, Vic Ketchman highlighted some particular moments
*Oct. 26, 1997--The Steelers return the favor with a 23-17 victory, when Jerome Bettis scores in overtime. It is voted one of the greatest games in Three Rivers Stadium history.
*. 4, 2004--Rookie quarterback Ben Roethlisberger drives the Steelers down the field in the final minute and a half of the game, and the Steelers kick the game-winner with 18 seconds to play in a 17-16 win.
*Oct. 16, 2005--Rashean Mathis intercepts a Tommy Maddox pass and returns it 41 yards for a game-winning touchdown in overtime, in the Jaguars' 23-17 win at Heinz Field.
So, expect some magic on Monday night. It's sure to be a classic!
