This is a list of seasons completed by the Pittsburgh Steelers American football franchise in the National Football League (NFL). The list documents the season-by-season records of the franchise from its founding (as the Pirates) in 1933 to present. The list also includes postseason records, and league awards for individual players or head coaches.
Founded in 1933, the Steelers are the oldest franchise in the American Football Conference (AFC); only seven clubs in the National Football Conference (NFC) have longer tenures in the NFL. The team struggled to be competitive in its early history, posting winning records in just eight of its first 39 seasons. Since the AFL–NFL merger in 1970, however, it has appeared in eight Super Bowls and is the only team to have won the Super Bowl six times. The six championships place the Steelers fourth in the league in terms of total championships (including those prior to the first Super Bowl), trailing only the Green Bay Packers (13 championships), the Chicago Bears (9) and the New York Giants (8). The club's 15 AFC Championship Game appearances are a record. In addition, they have hosted more conference championship games (11) than any franchise in either conference, and are tied with the Dallas Cowboys with eight appearance in the Super Bowl.
Kansas City (also referred to as KC) is a fifteen-county metropolitan area, the largest portion being Kansas City, Missouri. With a population of 2.34 million, Kansas City ranks as the second largest metropolitan area in Missouri (after Greater St. Louis) and the largest metropolitan area in Kansas.
