1999 Steelers 21 at Bills 24

Kordell Stewart plays fairly well (21 of 29, 216 yds, 2 TD, 1 INT), but a critical 3rd quarter INT combined with virtually no running game (Bettis gains just 24 yds on 13 carries) spells doom for the Steelers. Meanwhile, Doug Flutie scrambles/improvises his way to a near-perfect performance, hitting 21 of 32 for 261 yds, 3 TD, 0 INT and adding 39 yds with his legs. The Steelers fight hard, but any chance for a Steeler win goes up in smoke as Buffalo converts two critical 4th-and-short situations late in the game. 
After the game, CBS sideline reporter Bonnie Bernstein interviews Bills quarterback Doug Flutie.
