1997 Steelers 26 at Bengals 10

Jerome Bettis rumbles for 135 yds and a TD, Thigpen catches 6 for 120 yds and a TD and Kordell Stewart throws for 246 yds and 2 scores as the Steelers win their 4th consecutive game. The key play comes in the 4th quarter with the Bengals trailing 23-10. Jeff Blake hits Carl Pickens near midfield for what looks to be a sure TD for Cinci that will narrow the score to 23-17, but a hustling Carnell Lake catches the streaking Pickens from behind and strips him of the ball, which rolls out of the end zone resulting in a Steeler touchback.
