Cheap Shots

Physical play is part of sports but when lines are crossed, our opinion of what constitutes a “cheap shot” is often defined by the players and teams involved. In this episode we will cover the plays that were labeled by teams, media, and fans as dirty – some of which were against Pittsburgh athletes and some of which were inflicted by Pittsburgh athletes.

The Steelers vs Oilers/Titans Rivalry

While this is one of those teams we miss having  on our schedule every year, we can still look back on the memorable moments that made this rivalry so much fun.
