On This Date . . .

January 28, 1996 the Steelers . . . lost . . . a . . . Super Bowl . . . at Sun Devils Stadium in Tempe, Arizona.

Given little chance to beat the Dallas Cowboys (Pittsburgh was a 13 1/2 point underdog), the Steelers outplayed them for most of the contest; but the outcome of the game turned on two Neil O'Donnell interceptions. To this day no explanation has been provided as to just who made the mistakes -- the quarterback or the receiver -- on virtually the same play call, but they were killers.
