When it comes to Super Bowl wins, no team currently has more than the Pittsburgh Steelers, and when it comes to winning percentage, this team tops the league since the NFL merger, according to Statmuse.com. Some impressive winning streaks over the years have put the franchise in this position.

The Steelers are known for their Steel Curtain era in the '70s as well as their powerhouse defenses of the early 2000s. It's no surprise to see some of their hottest streaks during these years. Here are the three longest winning streaks in Pittsburgh Steelers history.

3. 1975 season: 11-game winning streak

The 1975 season marked the second of four Super Bowls over a six-year stretch for head coach Chuck Noll and the Pittsburgh Steelers. A star-studded defense helped this team surrender just 11.6 points per game to their opponents -- good for second in the league.

Though there were a couple of close calls that threatened this impressive stretch, Pittsburgh was able to string together 11 straight wins. This broke the record for the longest streak without a loss since the franchise started all the way back in 1933.

After losing in Week 2 against the Buffalo Bills, the Steelers caught fire before their offense put up just 3 points in a 3-10 loss against the Rams -- ending their 11-game winning streak. If not for this loss, the Steelers could have made it 15 straights game, as they would eventually go on to win Super Bowl X against the Dallas Cowboys following the 1975 season.
