Pittsburgh Steelers: Ranking the Steelers' Top 6 Unforgivable Playoff Losses

Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers should be hanging their heads after Sunday's playoff loss.

After the Pittsburgh Steelers' dumbfounding AFC wild-card playoff loss to the Denver Broncos, it's been hard to turn on the TV or radio.

Hearing pundits talk about this weekend's NFL divisional playoff games, which don't include the Steelers, is like hearing a love song after a breakup.

Steelers fans can't celebrate Super Bowl victories every year, but some non-championship finishes are easier to take than others.

In a 2007 AFC Wild Card Game, the Steelers fell behind the Jacksonville Jaguars 28-10, went ahead 29-28 then lost 31-29 on a field goal with 40 seconds left.

In a 2002 AFC divisional game at Tennessee, master thespian Joe Nedney kicked the game-winning overtime field goal in the Titans' 34-31 win.

Those losses were heartbreaking, but forgivable. The 2002 Steelers were flawed defensively and the 2007 Steelers were banged up. It wasn't surprising to see those teams go down.

This season's early exit has been hard to believe, and as the days go by, the Steelers' loss to the Broncos goes from unbelievable to unforgivable.

Is this the most unforgivable playoff loss in Steelers history? Let's take a look.
