- 1978-79 Pittsburgh Steelers
The Steelers won a pair of back-to-back championships in the 1970s, and the team that won the second pair rates the nod as the best team of the modern era.
Not only was this one of the greatest defensive teams of all-time with Joe Greene, Donnie Shell, Jack Lambert and Mel Blount, but the offense also reached its peak with Terry Bradshaw at quarterback and wide receivers John Stallworth and Lynn Swann giving head coach Chuck Noll tons of big-play ability.
The Steelers beat a strong Houston Oilers team in the AFC title game both seasons, and defeated the Dallas Cowboys and Los Angeles Rams in the Super Bowls following those two seasons.
Both the Cowboys and Rams played sensational games, but they did not have the firepower to compete with the Steelers.
