The 1975 Pittsburgh Steelers cemented themselves as one of the National Football League’s early elites by winning a second consecutive Super Bowl title. In successfully defending their crown the Steelers met every challenge, answered every call, and in the end again stood atop the NFL mountain with a victory over the Dallas Cowboys in Super Bowl X in Miami.
Throughout the 1975 campaign the Steelers were the prime target of every team on their schedule. Not only did they navigate the regular season with the best record in the American Football Conference and tied for the best record in the entire NFL, they did so despite losing their leader and one of the most dominant defensive players in the game, Joe Greene, to injury for a significant portion of the season.
The Steelers rallied around each other to defeat a hungry Baltimore Colts team in the opening round of the playoffs, found a way to win in freezing conditions against their bitter rivals the Oakland Raiders in a rematch of the previous year’s AFC championship game, and held off a furious Cowboys’ comeback in the final minutes of the Super Bowl to stake their claim as one of the NFL’s first dynasties.
