Steelers fans who are having a little bit of football withdrawal without a preseason can get their fix on Saturday when the team's 2018 win over the New England Patriots and their victory over the Indianapolis Colts in the 2005 postseason air on Pittsburgh's CW at 3 p.m. 'Steelers Rewind presented by 84 Lumber' on the CW can be seen only in the Pittsburgh market.
I don't know about you, but these games definitely bring back some fun memories for me, and some tense moments, and hopefully watching it will spark some of those memories or create new ones as you watch them with family. Whichever it is, make sure you share those memories for your chance to get featured on Steelers.com and the team's social media platforms by visiting Steelers Nation Unite Traditions.
If you need a little bit of a refresher on the games, this should definitely jar your memories, although I am guessing this isn't even needed.
Steelers 17, Patriots 10
Two words. Joe Haden.
It was Haden's late game heroics, and honestly his play throughout the game, that sealed a 17-10 Steelers win, the first win over the Patriots in six attempts. With 7:43 to play in the game, Haden's leaping interception of Tom Brady in the red zone thwarted a Patriots game-tying attempt and sent the Heinz Field crowd home smiling.
Steelers 21, Colts 18
It was a fantastic finish in the AFC Divisional Round Game against the Indianapolis Colts on Jan. 15, 2006 at the RCA Dome, albeit one which had all of Steelers Nation holding their breath. In the closing minutes and in need of a big play, Colts quarterback Peyton Manning was sacked for a 10-yard loss on fourth down, giving the Steelers the ball at the Colts two-yard line. The game appeared to be over, but not even close. Jerome Bettis did what he never does, fumbled near the goal line when he was hit by Gary Brackett. Nick Harper recovered in stride and looked like he was headed to the opposite end zone, until Ben Roethlisberger, the unlikeliest of heroes, made what would become known as "The Tackle." Roethlisberger got Harper with the shoestring tackle at the Colts 42-yard line.
Manning took control and drove the Colts to the Steelers 28-yard line, where an almost automatic Mike Vanderjagt gave Steelers fans their breath back when his 46-yard field goal went wide right, and the Steelers held on to win, 21-18.
