One was lifting weights at home. Another was training for a triathlon. A third was watching a game at a friend's house. Regular guys doing regular things. Then there were the others. One drank antifreeze. Another was in a high-speed chase. Two things in common among all: They were Pittsburgh Steelers; and they died in the last six years. Fresh off their first Super Bowl victory in 26 years, the Steelers have experienced the emotional gamut.

Ten years after receiver John Stallworth reached over cornerback Rod Perry's outstretched fingertips to catch the classic, magazine-cover touchdown pass that polished off the Rams in Super Bowl XIV, another Stallworth dares to show his face in Ram territory. His name is Tim, and he's a second cousin of the former Pittsburgh Steeler.

The Pittsburgh Steelers were playing for pride. The New York Jets were playing for their playoff lives. Pride won. The Steelers got three touchdowns from running back Walter Abercrombie and forced four turnovers by Jet quarterback Ken O'Brien for a 45-24 victory Saturday that seriously damaged New York's postseason hopes. After a 10-1 start, the Jets fell to 10-5 with their fourth consecutive loss and fourth poor offensive showing.

The Cleveland Browns' defenders nicknamed themselves the Dogs last season, although until Monday night, their bark was usually worse than their bite. After collapsing in the closing seconds of a season-opening loss against the St. Louis Cardinals last week, the Cleveland defense turned in two fourth-quarter interceptions Monday night to seal a 17-7 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. "We really needed this, to take things over in the latter part of the game," linebacker Chip Banks said.

Bud Carson, defensive coordinator for the New York Jets, held the same job with the Rams in 1979, and he still has nightmares over the 31-19 loss to Pittsburgh in Super Bowl XIV. "We had the perfect game plan,"said Carson, who formerly had been an assistant for the Steelers. "But we blew a coverage on John Stallworth in the fourth quarter and that was the difference."

The story line in Super Bowl XIV followed something along the lines of one play in the Steeler playbook--the "hook and go." In the case of the Steelers, it was the hook and go put on a fourth Super Bowl ring. The play that won the Super Bowl for the Steelers, 31-19 over the Rams, was put in especially for the game, which isn't that unusual, but it hadn't worked a single time in eight tries in practice.

This is the game the Raiders were supposed to be in. They didn't quite make it. For a while, the Denver Broncos also expected to be here, but they didn't make it, either. The Pittsburgh Steelers, who won from both in their last two starts to climax an otherwise embarrassing 9-7 season, also earned the honor of losing to the Miami Dolphins at 9:30 this morning. That is, most fans think they'll lose.
