The victory of The Pittsburgh Steelers
January 9th 2016, The Pittsburgh Steelers in Cincinnati, victory over the home team Cincinnati Bengals’ after a thrilling 4th with 18-16, and sail to the next round. They prepare to against the home team Denver Broncos in the afternoon of January 17th in Denver. To speak of, this is the first time Pittsburgh Steelers victory into playoff in 5 years. Not only the Steelers at least enter into the next round of the playoffs that is play for the Division title, but also stabilized the , so that all the fans would raise their spirits greatly. Finally the Pittsburgh Steelers could have a great dream about entering into the super bowl.

The last win in the playoffs is the Pittsburgh Steelers victory over New York Jets on January 23, 2011. When the Steelers had a big head for the third title in the super bowl in 6 years (the first two in 2006 and 2009), they, however, 25-31 loss to the Green Bay Packers, evermore missed the super bowl. For example, although the Steelers has got into the playoffs on January 8th 2012, they was defeated by the Denver Broncos in round one. They got 8-8 in the end of the playoffs in 2012-2013 seasons and 2013-2014 seasons. In spite of, the Steelers finally won the team title and home-field advantage in the 2014-15 season, they still were defeated by the Baltimore Ravens at 17-30; therefore miss the next round of the playoffs.

So the Steelers has waited for 5 years when they won the first playoff victory. Not only should feel proud, but can connect with this historical moment that the Steelers was for the first time to be No. 6 Seed wild card team in the NFL in the 2005-2006 season. Although the lack of talent at that time, and there is no home-court advantage, they got unexpected success and victory over the Seattle Seahawks. They made a legendary achievement of winning the super bowl and have gradually become the most dominant team in the title. They dream about making the Pittsburgh as the “title” city to be a reality. 

Although after a decade, there are only 6 active-duty people in The Steelers, who has taken part in the 2006, 2009 and2011 Super Bowl. This new team going into the postseason was different from ten years ago, but in some places it is strikingly similar. For example, the Steelers met the Cincinnati Bengals in the first round, they always won the team championship and hold a home-court advantage, The was the wide card team on the road, and the next round against one of the teams would be the Denver Broncos. This season game is concerned; The Cincinnati Bengals also used the bench when the quarterback was injured and unable to continue playing. And the Steelers managed to in the face of adversity, and turned defeat into victory, getting into the next round.

Where there is a will there is a way. When the Pittsburgh Steelers has a hard time over the last ten years, they did not give up. Whatever old people or the new fresh join them, they are a perfect combination. They have ever got into the super bowl third times, which reflect that the Pittsburgh Steelers have ability to gain the title. I hope they can bring a better performance to the fans in the next new season, and hold a special celebration for them.
