1995 Steelers 31 vs Chargers 16

Revenge!!! Well, sort-of. Pittsburgh simply takes it to the Bolts in a rematch of the '94 AFC Championship game. The Steelers are clearly on a mission in this one, marching 75 yards in 11 plays on their opening drive, capped by a 1-yard scoring run by Bam Morris. Pittsburgh's defense then steps up with two interceptions for TDs and the rout is on. Willie Williams picks off a Humphries pass and returns it 63 yards for a touchdown with 6:10 left in the 1st quarter. Alvoid Mays then returns an INT 32 yards for another score with 1:33 left in the quarter to increase Pittsburgh's lead to 21-0. Williams and Mays finish with two interceptions EACH for the Steelers, who pick off Humphries a total of four times. Bam Morris adds a second rushing TD before the half Pittsburgh builds a 31-6 halftime lead. It's hard not to look at this game, think of the '94 AFCC and say, "What if?" 
At halftime, in addition to scores and highlights with "Bryant" (as Dick Enberg mistakenly calls Greg, to much hilarity) Gumbel, we get a local news report from WCMH, the NBC station in Columbus, Ohio.
