4. Houston Oilers/Tennessee Titans – The Steelers-Oilers games were always a blast to watch, as Houston always gave the Steelers a run for their money in the “Steel Curtain” era of the 70’s. From Bum Phillips to Earl Campbell, the Oilers were a threat to the Steelers, as the two foes met in back-to-back AFC Championship games in 1978 and 1979, with the Steelers winning both at home 34-5 and 27-13. Then Houston underwent a change as they employed the now defunct “run and shoot” offense of Warren Moon and his wide outs in the late 80’s and early 90’s. The Oilers then bailed to Tennessee before the 1996 season, but the teams still battled twice per year till Tennessee moved to the AFC South after the 2001 season. Now they are two of the better teams in the AFC, but the years of Bum Phillips vs Chuck Noll is still the highlight of this feud.
