1991 Steelers 26 vs Chargers 20

The Steelers score their first TD in a season opener in 3 years and terrorize John Friesz, limiting him to only 75 yds passing through 3 quarters. San Diego trails 19-3 before scoring 17 points in the final 10 minutes, but the outcome is never really in question. Brister (13 of 21, 181 yds, 1 TD) throws INTs on consecutive passes in the 1st half but bounces back with a 33-yd TD pass to Calloway in the 2nd. Brister gets sandwiched and goes out with a concussion midway though the 4th and O'Donnell comes in and throws a screen to Dwight Stone, who picks up a great block from Lipps and blazes 89 yds for a 26-13 Pittsburgh lead with 1:30 left. Footage includes some postgame material. Thanks to Jay Korber for generously providing this game! 
At halftime, scores and highlights from NFL Live, plus a look at the hottest rivalry of that time, 49ers-Giants (featuring the respective former head coaches, Bill Walsh and Bill Parcells, both of whom were now working for NBC).


After the game, highlights from the 5th Quarter.
