1995 Steelers 21 vs Oilers 7

The Steelers win their sixth straight and clinch their 3rd AFC Central title in 4 years. O'Donnell hits Thigpen on a 33-yard crossing pattern in which Thigpen gathers in the pass, deftly avoids two tacklers at the 15-yard line and cruises into the end zone to open the scoring on the final play of the first quarter. After Houston ties the score on a fluke 76-yard TD pass from Chandler to Sanders, O'Donnell puts the Steelers back in front when he connects with rookie TE Bruener from 7 yards out just before halftime. Bruener's score caps a 6-play, 59-yard drive that consumes just 81 seconds. Bam Morris finishes the scoring with a devastating 30-yard BLAST up the middle late in the 4th quarter that puts him over 100 yards and puts the Oilers away. 
Chris Sanders career flamed out pretty quick despite all that promise.

Is this the game Houston tried playing dirty & got their asses kicked? I remember one game our punter at the time fighting a Oilers player

Not sure. I was at this game. Don't remember any fights, but it's 20+ years go.

Man... how can this be 22 years ago already??? Where does the time go?!!!
Look at the name of the YouTube poster who posted this?  During 1996 also.  




At halftime, in addition to scores and highlights, Greg Gumbel interviews Marcus Allen.
