2015 SEASON HIGHLIGHTS
TENTH ANNIVERSARY OF SUPER BOWL XL
BETTIS TO HALL OF FAME
The Pittsburgh Steelers will
celebrate the 10th anniversary of
its Super Bowl XL victory during
Week 10 of the 2015 season.
On Saturday, Nov. 14, the Alumni Weekend Dinner at Heinz Field
will highlight the Super Bowl XL
team. The annual event benefits
the UPMC Sports Medicine Concussion Program and Cancer Caring
Center.
At halftime of the Steelers’ game the following day against the
Cleveland Browns at Heinz Field, members of the Super Bowl XL
championship team will be introduced on the stadium field and recnognized for their achievement in capturing the team’s fifth of six
Lombardi trophies.
Former Pittsburgh Steelers RB
Jerome Bettis was honored for his
illustrious career as one of the NFL’s
most prolific running backs as he
was elected to the Pro Football Hall
of Fame Class of 2015, and was enshrined on Saturday, August 8, at Tom
Benson Hall of Fame Stadium.
He was honored during the team’s
Thursday Night Football game in
Week 4 against Baltimore during a special ring ceremony.
Bettis played in 192 regular-season games in his 13-year career,
spending his first three years with the Los Angeles/St. Louis Rams
and the final 10 with the Steelers. The Detroit native registered the
sixth-most rushing yards (13,662) in NFL history. Bettis eclipsed the
100-yard rushing mark in 61 games during the regular season and
three times in the postseason, compiling a 47-17 record in those
contests.
He recorded 78 rushing touchdowns as a member of the Steelers during the regular season, the second-most in franchise history
behind Hall of Famer Franco Harris (91). In all, Bettis led his team
in rushing 11 seasons, three with the Rams and eight with the Steelers. His eight 1,000-plus yard seasons tied for third-best in the NFL
when he retired.
Bettis was named to six Pro Bowls, voted first team All-Pro twice,
second team All-Pro once and was the NFL’s Comeback Player of
the Year in 1996. In 10 years in Pittsburgh, Bettis helped the Steelers reach four AFC Championship games and win Super Bowl XL in
2005, finishing his career with a victory over the Seattle Seahawks.
Before he came to Pittsburgh in 1996 and recorded 1,431 rushing
yards in his first season, the Steelers had only one 1,000+ yard
rusher in the previous 12 seasons.
SUPER BOWL 50 CELEBRATION
The 2015 season marks a year-long celebration of the Super Bowl
to commemorate Super Bowl 50, which will be played on Sunday,
February 7, 2016 at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif.
The “On the Fifty” platform is designed to link the past 49 Super
Bowls with this year’s game and honor the teams, players, coaches,
fans and communities that have been a part of those games.
The 2015 NFL regular-season schedule features 19 Super Bowl
rematches - three of which features the Steelers.
The Steelers’ first Super Bowl
rematch of the 2015 season came
in Week 3, when the team faced
the Rams in St. Louis - a rematch
of Super Bowl XIV in which Pittsburgh defeated the then Los
Angeles Rams, 31-19, at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif.
In Week 6, Pittsburgh hosted
the Arizona Cardinals at
Heinz Field, pitting the two
Super Bowl XLIII participants against one another. At
Raymond James Stadium
in Tampa, Fla., the Steelers
were victorious over the Cardinals, 27-23.
The team’s third Super Bowl
rematch of 2015 will take place
in Week 12 when the Steelers
face the Seattle Seahawks in
a road game. The two teams
faced off in Super Bowl XL in
Detroit, Mich., resulting in a 2110 win for Pittsburgh.
Pittsburgh also faced the Minnesota Vikings in the 2015 NFL/Hall
of Fame Game - the two contestants played in Super Bowl IX.

THE LAST TIME VS. OAKLAND
Oakland 21, Pittsburgh 18
Oct. 27, 2013
O.co Coliseum (52,950)
OAKLAND – The Steelers could not erase an 18-point first-half
deficit and lost to the Oakland Raiders, 21-18, at the O.co Coliseum.
On the Raiders first play of the game, QB Terrelle Pryor faked
a handoff to RB Darren McFadden, and then ran 93 yards for a
touchdown to give Oakland an early 7-0 lead. P Zoltan Mesko’s
attempt was blocked midway through the first quarter, which set
Oakland up at the Steelers’ 26-yard line. Five plays later, McFadden scored on a seven-yard run to give the Raiders a 14-0 lead.
Late in the first quarter, S Troy Polamalu picked off Pryor and
returned it to the Raiders’ 48-yard line. K Shaun Suisham capped
off the ensuing drive with a 47-yard field goal to cut the lead, 14-3.
The Raiders scored their final points of the game after the twominute warning when McFadden scored on a four-yard run to give
the Raiders a 21-3 lead at halftime.
Neither team scored in the third quarter. Early in the fourth quarter, DE Brett Keisel recovered an Oakland fumble that was forced
by LB Lawrence Timmons, and three plays later QB Ben Roethlisberger found WR Emmanuel Sanders for a nine-yard touchdown to cut the lead, 21-10.
With 1:27 left in the game, RB Le’Veon Bell scored on a twoyard run, and Sanders scored on a two-point conversion to cut the
lead, 21-18. The Steelers attempted an onside kick but it was recovered by the Raiders.
Despite the loss, the Steelers defense forced a season-high
three turnovers and held their opponents to a season-low 82 net
passing yards.

THE TOMLIN FILE
THE TOMLIN FILE CONT’D
Mike Tomlin was named the 16th head coach in Pittsburgh
Steelers history on Jan. 22, 2007. Hired at the age of 34, Tomlin
became only the third head coach hired by the Steelers since 1969.
Tomlin became the youngest head coach in NFL history to both
coach in and win a Super Bowl when he led the Steelers to a 27-23
victory over the Arizona Cardinals in Super Bowl XLIII. By winning
the Super Bowl in only his second season as a head coach, he also
became the fastest to win a Super Bowl title in Steelers’ history.
Through eight seasons, Tomlin has accomplished many things that
have never been done in the team’s storied history. His 82-46 record
(.641) is best start in franchise history. He has guided the Steelers’
defense to the NFL’s top ranking in total defense four times, including
most recently in 2012. He has also sent a total of 45 selections to the
league’s annual Pro Bowl, including five following the 2014 season.
Tomlin has reached the playoffs five times in his first eight seasons,
including two trips to the Super Bowl (winning Super Bowl XLIII).
Tomlin is one of only seven coaches in league history to win a
Super Bowl within his first two seasons as an NFL head coach.
Tomlin is the only head coach in Steelers history to lead the team
to two Super Bowls in his first four seasons at the helm, including
an appearance against the Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl XLV.
He is one of only two Steelers’ head coaches to win three division
titles in his first four seasons. Tomlin was appointed by Commisioner
Roger Goodell to the NFL’s Competition Committee in March, 2013.
In 2014, Tomlin, who has a defensive coaching background,
orchestrated one of the top offensive outputs in team history. The
Steelers broke numerous offensive records, including points scored
(436), total yards (6,577), passing yards/game (301.6) and total first
downs (379).
On an individual basis in 2014, Tomlin guided QB Ben
Roethlisberger, WR Antonio Brown and RB Le’Veon Bell – whom
all made the Pro Bowl – to record-setting years. Roethlisberger had
personal bests in passing yards (4,952), completions (408) and
passing TDs (32, T-2007), while Brown established team records
for receptions (129), receiving yards (1,698) and receiving TDs (13).
Bell, in his first full year as a starter, who was also named Team MVP,
broke the Steelers’ records for scrimmage yards (2,215) as well as
receptions (83) and receiving yards (854) by a running back.
Over the past two seasons, Tomlin has led the team to a 7-1 record
in the month of December, winning each of the last four in 2014 to
capture the AFC North title.
Arguably one of his best coaching performances may possibly
have come in the second half of the 2013 season. Despite an 0-4
and 2-6 start to the season, the Steelers finished the regular season
surging to a 6-2 second-half record, falling just short of the playoffs.
However, he rallied the team despite numerous injuries on both
sides of the ball, to stick together and finished second in the AFC
North. The 2013 campaign also saw QB Ben Roethlisberger, WR
and team WR Antonio Brown and RB Le’Veon Bell break numerous
regular-season records for the Steelers. Brown and S Troy Polamalu
were each selected to the Pro Bowl following the season.
Tomlin led the Steelers to a 27-10 victory over the New York Jets
in the 2012 home opener, becoming the first coach in team history
to win his first six home openers. The Steelers finished the season
with the top-ranked overall defense (275.8 ypg) and finished first in
passing defense (185.2 ypg).
In 2011, Tomlin led the Steelers to a 12-4 record, marking the
second straight season the team posted 12 wins, which marked
only the second time in team history it has been achieved.
The Steelers finished second in total defense under Tomlin in
2010, allowing only 276.8 yards per game. Pittsburgh led the NFL
and set a team record in rushing defense, yielding only 62.8 yards
per game (1,004 yards), the third-best total in NFL history dating
back to 1970. The Steelers also established an NFL record in 2010
by not allowing an opponent to rush for more than 75 yards in any
of their first eight games during the regular season.
In all, the Steelers defense led the NFL in 2010 in rushing yards
allowed, points allowed (232), touchdowns (22), quarterback sacks
(48), rushing average (3.0), yards per play (4.5) and yards allowed
on first down (4.08).
Tomlin was a three-year starter at wide receiver at William and
Mary (1990-94) and finished his career with 101 receptions for
2,054 yards and 20 TD catches. A first-team All-Yankee Conference
selection in 1994, he established a school record with a 20.2 yardsper-catch average.

GOOD FIRST EIGHT
Mike Tomlin has accomplished a lot in his first eight seasons
as head coach of the Steelers. Tomlin’s 82 wins after his first eight
seasons are the most wins in team history for any coach after his
first eight seasons. His two Super Bowl appearances also are tied
for the franchise best for a coach in his first eight seasons. Tomlin’s
five postseason berths and four division titles are tied for second for
the most in a coach’s first eight seasons.
Below is how Tomlin ranks among Steelers’ coaches after their

Game #8
Cincinnati 16, Pittsburgh 10
Nov. 1, 2015
Heinz Field (64,750)
PITTSBURGH – With less than three minutes remaining
in the game, QB Andy Dalton threw a go-ahead nine-yard
touchdown to WR A.J. Green, and K Mike Nugent made a
44-yard field goal to seal the 16-10 victory for the Bengals.
The Steelers scored on their opening drive, going 80 yards
in 12 plays. QB Ben Roethlisberger, who returned to the
starting lineup after missing the previous four games due to
a knee injury, capped off the drive with a one-yard touchdown
pass to WR Antonio Brown. Pittsburgh’s offense would
struggle to move the football the remainder of the game.
On the Bengals’ ensuing drive, Nugent connected on a
44-yard field goal to cut the lead to 7-3. Nugent added a 45yard field goal on the first play of the second quarter to cut
the lead to 7-6, which was the halftime score.
Midway through the third quarter, K Chris Boswell connected on a 32-yard field goal to extend Pittsburgh’s lead
to 10-6. But it would be the final points for Pittsburgh on the
afternoon.
Both defenses forced turnovers, but neither offense could
capitalize until S Shawn Williams picked off Roethlisberger
at the Pittsburgh 45-yard line. Dalton then led the Bengals
on a six-play, 45-yard drive that he capped off with the goahead score to Green.
Pittsburgh took over but Roethlisberger threw an interception to S Reggie Nelson on the team’s first play. Nugent then
made his 44-yard field goal to seal the win.
The Steelers had one last chance to win the game. Roethlisberger led the team to the Bengals’ 16-yard line, but his
final pass was thrown out of the end zone.
