The Pittsburgh Steelers are a perennial postseason team. Since 2002—the year the league aligned to eight divisions with the inclusion of the Houston Texans—the Steelers have failed to make the postseason just three times.
In the same time, the team have been to three Super Bowls, winning two.
Pittsburgh has the enviable playoff record in large part due to its stalwart defense and cunning offense. Both have featured future Hall of Famers like Ben Roethlisberger, Hines Ward, James Harrison and Troy Polamalu.
But there are a handful of players who seem to do all the dirty work when it gets to the postseason. So, without further ado, I give you the 10 players who will tip the scales in favor of the Pittsburgh Steelers.
