After what was considered the franchise's greatest season ever in 1976, the 1977 Pittsburgh Steelers won 9 games and appeared in the playoffs for their 6th straight season. The Steelers never as sharp as usual, as they won the AFC Central with a 9–5 record. They had a hard time for most of the season as their record hovered around .500. Even the Steel curtain seemed to have a little wear and tear allowing 243 points on the season, more than 100 more than the previous season. Lackluster play would catch up with them in the Divisional Playoffs when they are knocked off by the Broncos 34–21 in Denver.
