1994 Steelers 14 vs Bengals 10

Chalk this one up in the "a win is a win" category. The Steelers take a 14-0 first half lead vs. the 0-6 Bengals and it looks as though the rout is on, but instead the Steeler offense goes into a shell. The previously hapless Bengals, who came into the game with a league low 3 sacks for the season, sack Neil O'Donnell a whopping 8 times. At one point, the Steelers have a sequence that goes like this: sack, sack, punt... sack, incomplete pass, sack and then an illegal procedure on the punt followed by an ineligible man down-field penalty. And while the defense still plays well enough to escape with a win, they were far from their best with even the great Rod Woodson having a rough day. Special teams fared no better, giving up a sloppy TD on a fake field goal turned shovel pass to narrow the score to 14-10. Thankfully, the Bengals revert to the Bengals with some incredibly stupid play calling at the end (e.g., a 2-yard Broussard power run up the middle on 3rd & 7 from midfield???) and the Steelers escape with a win. 


Don Criqui.... Classic!

Interesting to watch the young receiver group one year prior to it fully developing. Green and Morris were two great but wasted talents.

Love rewatching the 90s Steelers, thank you so much for posting these

'94 and '95 were special years. The Steeler renaissance after a dark decade. Good times and great defense.

Glad you're enjoying!  Thumbsup
