No. 10 – 1975 Pittsburgh Steelers
Super Bowl X Champions
The Steelers won back-to-back Super Bowls when they defeated the Dallas Cowboys, 21-17, in Super Bowl X.
The Steelers found success thanks to a dominating defense, dubbed the Steel Curtain, and an offense that could beat you in the air or on the ground. In eight games opponents were held to 10 points or less as they cruised to a 12-2 record and the defense was ranked No. 2 in the NFL. Mel Blount led the defense and was named the NFL’s Defensive Player of the Year.
Not to be outdone, the Steelers ground game behind Franco Harris and Rocky Bleier was also ranked No. 2 in the NFL. Emerging stars Lynn Swann and John Stallworth, both in their second season, also put on quite a show.
The Steelers hosted the Baltimore Colts in the AFC Divisional Round, coming back from behind for a 28-10 win with an amazing 211 yards rushing. The next week they hosted the Oakland Raiders in the AFC Championship game, defeating them, 10-16. The Steelers went on to win Super Bowl X.
