About Miami Dolphins vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
The Miami Dolphins and the Pittsburgh Steelers have only faced each other a total of 23 times. But this has been enough to kick start an intense rivalry. With 12 games won by the Dolphins and 11 by the Steelers, the head to head record for the two teams is pretty even. Even in the post season, they have won two games each.
With such a record, there is no denying the fact that the Dolphins and the Steelers are two competitive teams. Let’s take a look at an interesting moment between the Dolphins and the Steelers.
Notable Moment between the Steelers and the Dolphins
The Mud Bowl – A Monday Night Football game between the two teams, played on November 26, 2007, turned into a mud bowl. Thanks to the remnants of the Hurricane Jeanne, there was heavy downpour during the game. The oddly warm temperatures and the rare heavy storm caused some very unique playing conditions at the Heinz Field. Rather than entirely replacing the field, a sod surface was overlaid over the field. This, combined with the heavy downpour, created some of the worst conditions for a football game. The field practically became a swamp. The conditions were horrendous, with players hitting water puddles and sinking into the ground over and over.
Miami almost took the Steelers to overtime, but the Steelers managed to win the game 3-0. Even though the quality of the game left much to be desired, the highlights were fun to watch in slow motion, with mud splashing all over the place.
