Hey Yinz Guys: 

This is the time of year that we all look forward to.  Postseason football!  It is January, so that can mean only one thing: the Steelers are in the playoffs!  After a well deserved bye week to start the playoffs the Black and Gold host a Divisional Playoff Game against a familiar foe.  You know you are ready, so, unless you will be at Heinz Field this weekend there is only one place to be…

The Jags come to tahn this week as the Stillers look to get a little revenge for an early season loss.  The Jags ran all over the Steelers earlier this year and the Black and Gold have been looking forward to this rematch.  Especially after a few of the Jags questioned the Steelers toughness.  

The Jags are coming off a 10-3 win over the Bills in the Wildcard Round in what many people called a cure for insomnia.  Look for a physical game this week and for Heinz Field to rock!


Q. What year and what play propelled the Steelers to their 1st ever playoff win?
