1996 Steelers 28 vs Jaguars 3

Revenge for the season-opener. Jason Gildon has a huge game, tackling runners in the backfield, making great open-field tackles, and nailing Brunell for 2 sacks including one that results in a fumble at the Jags 5 yard line. Mike Tomzcak puts on a pitiful 7 of 24 display, but Thigpen still manages to haul in 2 TD passes. The defense kicks Brunell's butt all over the field with 6 sacks and 2 Ints, highlighted by Carnell Lake's sack, forced fumble and 85 yard return of that fumble for a TD in the 3rd quarter. Rookie Chad Brown also performs well. 
Before the game, most of an edition of the Bill Cowher Show, with highlights of the previous week's game against the Bengals, a look at the Jaguars, a viewer question, and an interview with Will Wolford.

At halftime, scores and highlights plus a preview of NBC's 4PM games that day (Dolphins-Oilers and Ravens-49ers).
