Number 9: December 16th 2001 – Bobby Shaw Clinches the AFC Central Division Title with a 90-yard TD vs the Ravens

In another classic battle vs the Ravens, the Steelers, then led by QB Kordell Stewart, were in a battle trying to stay atop the AFC Central and holding off Baltimore at the same time. In a back and forth affair, the Steelers were having great success going after the usually tough Ravens secondary. After a punt in the fourth quarter put the Steelers deep in their own territory, the Steelers looked for the clinching blow, and Stewart found it. Little known Bobby Shaw ran down a seam in the Ravens secondary, and Stewart delivered a perfect pass that ended 90 yards later with Shaw in the end zone, and the Steelers with another AFC Central title.
