1995 AFC Playoffs Steelers 40 vs Bills 21

A balanced Steelers offense produces 409 yards, including 262 yards passing by Neil O’Donnell and 106 yards rushing by Bam Morris, as the Steelers finally -- mercifully -- end Buffalo's streak of consecutive Super Bowl appearances. The Steelers jump out to a commanding 20-0 first half lead and seem to have the game well in hand after Carnell Lake picks off Jim Kelly to give Pittsburgh a 26-7 advantage late in the 3rd. But the always resilient Bills come storming back, narrowing the score to 26-21 on a short Thurman Thomas TD catch with 11 minutes remaining. But Bam Morris ends the Buffalo threat with a pair of bruising 4th quarter scoring runs in a span of 3 minutes, including a 13-yd TD in which he simply blows up Buffalo safety Matt Darby on his way to the end zone, paving the way to the Steelers second straight home AFC Championship game.
