Default The Steelers' Failed Comeback Attempt vs. the Jaguars

o


Today's Steelers-Jaguars playoff game reminded me of the 1980 AFC Championship Game between the Raiders and the Chargers.

In that game 37 years ago, the Raiders jumped out to a 28-7 lead late in the 2nd quarter. The Chargers added a touchdown just before halftime to close the gap to 28-14 (just as the Steelers did today), and then quickly added 10 more points in the 3rd quarter to close the gap even further to 28-24. But the Chargers could not get completely over the hump, and the Raiders won the game by a score of 34-27.


Similarly today, the Steelers drew close on several occasions in the 2nd half, but could never quite catch Jaguars.
