1993 Steelers 3 at Oilers 23

After a 1-4 start, the Oilers their 6th straight to move ahead of Pittsburgh into 1st place in the AFC Central. After a close first half, Moon hits Haywood Jeffires for a 66-yd TD behind DJ Johnson and Darren Perry to break the game open early in the 3rd. Lamar Lathon cheap-shots Neal O'Donnell, injuring his shoulder injury on a late hit, and shortly thereafter, DE William Fuller records his 4th of Houston's 6 sacks, forcing a fumble and knocking O'Donnell out for good. Mike Tomczak comes off the bench and tosses 2 4th quarter INTs and the Steelers never threaten to get back in the game. A big-time thanks to Dani Marsh for generously providing us with this game!

When I watched this at the time, I remember thinking about how pedestrian the Steeler WR core seemed, and how the Oilers are going to ride Buddy Ball to a SB title (I was dead wrong on the latter).

Agreed, I thought Houston was the odds-on favorite to go to the Super Bowl from the AFC. Top 5 on offense and defense. Dallas was the only other team that could make that boast. I was shocked when KC beat them in the Divisional round. Joe Montana's last great comeback.
