It was the Steelers 1st playoff game in their history after being losers for 40 years. That one play turned the franchise from the NFL's biggest loser into a big winner, winning 4 Super Bowls in the 70s. It also started a great rivalry with the Raiders. They would meet in the Playoffs 5 straight years, the last 3 for the AFC Championship with the winner winning the Super Bowl. It wasn't really a big play right after the game, but in the years after as both teams stoked the flames of their rivalry, it gained a mythical status.
