1985 Steelers 30 at Oilers 7

Frank Pollard (123 yds) and Walter Abercrombie (107 yds) each carry the ball 23 times and become the first pair of Steelers running backs to gain more than 100 yards in the same game since Franco Harris and Rocky Bleier did it in 1976. The Oilers -- who lose Warren Moon to an injury late in the 1st quarter -- are held to just 163 yds of total offense and the Steelers grind the clock for a whopping 40:17 to 19:43 advantage in time of possession en route to their 3rd straight win and 1st place in the AFC Central. A special thanks to Jay Korber for providing us with this game!
