1987 Steelers 13 vs Seahawks 9

The Steelers turn back the clock, using a punishing ground game and a strong defense to beat Seattle and move into a 1st-place tie with Houston and Cleveland. Pittsburgh rushes for 209 yds, including 106 yds on 22 carries by Frank Pollard, who scores the winning TD on an 11-yd run in the 4th quarter.

While the Steelers play a clean game, the Seahawks suffer 2 costly 2nd-half turnovers and a botched an extra-point, forcing Seattle to have to go for a TD late in the game rather than a tying field goal. Seattle leads 9-6 and is driving late in the 3rd when Bryan Hinkle recovers a fumble at the Steeler 19. The Steelers then drive 81 yds in 14 plays, capped by Pollard's game-winner on a trap up the middle on the first play of the 4th quarter. Delton Hall picks of Dave Krieg on Seattle's next possession and after a Pittsburgh punt, the Seahawks fail on 4th and 17 and the Steelers muscle down the clock.
