9. Cancelled Reservations

What: AFC Championship @ Pittsburgh Steelers
Date: 1/27/2002

In January of '02 we learned a lot about what would become the Patriots Dynasty, the Steelers learned that when your quarterback is Kordell Stewart, you should be a little less presumptuous. The Steelers were so confident that they'd bring an end to the Patriots Cinderella season that they openly discussed their hotel reservations in New Orleans for the Super Bowl. Instead, Patriots wideout Troy Brown murdered the black and yellow with 121 receiving yards, a scoop-and-score lateral on special teams and an electrifying punt return for a touchdown. No word on whether the Steelers got their deposits back.
