Overview: One of the great dynasties in sports history, the 1970s Pittsburgh Steelers won back-to-back Super Bowls in 1974-75 and 1978-79, immortalizing their run and creating legends out of Lynn Swann, Franco Harris and "Mean" Joe Greene.
One of the most well-run organizations in sports, the Steelers advanced to Super Bowl XXX in 1994, as well as Super Bowl XL in 2005 and Super Bowl XLIII in 2008.
In Super Bowl XLIII, the Steelers won 27-23 after completing one of the great drives in Super Bowl History, embarking on an eight-play, 78-yard drive that ended with Ben Roethlisberger finding Santonio Holmes in the corner of the end zone with 35 seconds remaining, giving the Steelers a record sixth Super Bowl victory.
