Super Bowls in the Super70s

By Patrick Mondout

The AFC dominated the Super Bowl with five straight wins at one point. One team in particular dominated the decade just as the Packers had done in the 60s: The long-suffering Pittsburgh Steelers, with Franco Harris, Lynn Swann, Terry Bradshaw and the famed "Steel Curtain" defense won four titles to easily win the NFL Team of the Decade award.

The Steelers were also featured on a stamp issued by the US Postal Service in 1999 as part of the Celebrate the Century series (see right).

The table below shows the results of each Super Bowl during the Super70s (figures for the Awesome80s are here).
