Pittsburgh Steelers’ head coach, Mike Tomlin, continues to carve his name into NFL history with yet another remarkable feat. Following the Steelers’ victory on December 31, Tomlin secured a winning season for the team, marking the 17th consecutive year he has achieved a non-losing record since the inception of his coaching career.  

This accomplishment now stands as a record in the league, as reported by NFL.com. While Tom Landry (Dallas Cowboys) holds the record with 21 seasons and Bill Belichick (New England Patriots) follows closely with 19, Tomlin’s consistency places him in an elite category. 

The recent 30-23 triumph over the Seattle Seahawks not only kept the Steelers’ postseason aspirations alive but also guaranteed Tomlin a 14th consecutive season with a winning record, boasting a 9-7 standing. 

Mike Tomlin made history in 2009 when, at the age of 36, he became the youngest NFL coach to clinch a Super Bowl victory in Super Bowl XLIII. Although this record was surpassed by Los Angeles Rams coach Sean McVay in 2021, Tomlin’s coaching legacy remains outstanding. Currently holding a career record of 180-109-2, reflecting a .622 winning percentage, Tomlin’s impact on the Steelers is undeniable. 

Adding to the team’s achievements, the Steelers can take pride in concluding their 20th consecutive season with a .500 or better won-loss record, marking the second-longest streak in NFL history.  

The record, held by Tom Landry’s Dallas Cowboys from 1965 to 1985, sits at 21 seasons, a feat that the Steelers have the opportunity to match in the upcoming season. 

As the regular season draws to a close, the Steelers face a challenging matchup against the AFC’s top-seeded Baltimore Ravens on Saturday, January 6. To secure a spot in the playoffs, the Steelers are reliant on the Tennessee Titans defeating the struggling Jacksonville Jaguars and/or the Miami Dolphins overcoming the resurgent Buffalo Bills, who currently boast a four-game winning streak.
