I was reading the illustrated book of the Pittsburgh Steelers and I seen a mistake. I don't have the book with me but if you will turn the book to the part where it shows the decade of the 2000's you will see that the Steelers record for 2004 is wrong. It says they went 12 and 4, and if you would check your stats they actually went 15 and 1 and lost to the patriots at home that year in The AFC ChampionShip game.
