The 1976 Steeler Defense - Greatest of All Time

At the start of the 1976 season, four losses in their first five games left the Steelers almost lifeless. When rookie QB Mike Kruczek took over for an injured Terry Bradshaw against he division-leading Cincinnati Bengals, the turning point was at hand.

Defensive Player of the Year Jack Lambert and the Steel Curtain answered the call. What followed was the most amazing defensive streak in modern history, the dimensions of which offer statistical delights to even the most casual football historians.

After their 1-4 start, the Steelers win 10 straight games. The defense does not allow a touchdown in 22 consecutive quarters nor in 8 of the last 9 regular season games and totally blanks 5 of its last 8 opponents, allowing only 28 points allowed over 9 games! There has never been anything like it in NFL history. Without question, the 1976 Pittsburgh Steeler defense was the greatest of all time.
