The Steelers vowed revenge, and at the time, it seemed all but guaranteed that a rematch would follow in the AFC Championship Game, only this time in Foxborough.
Unfortunately for the Steelers, the Jacksonville Jaguars had other plans, shocking Pittsburgh on the road before falling flat themselves against the Pats the following week.
