1997 Steelers 37 vs Oilers 24

Joined in progress. Without question, Kordell Stewart is the player of the game (16 of 24, 244 yds, 1 TD, 0 Int, 6 runs, 24 yds, 2 TD), threading the needle all afternoon and seemingly making big plays at will. In addition to scoring 3 TD's of his own (2 rushing, 1 passing), Stewart consistently finds the open man and is clearly in command of the game, getting the ball to his receivers with remarkable precision all afternoon. The pass rush that had been largely non-existant during the previous 3 games of the season has a coming out party with 7 sacks of Steve McNair and the secondary looks good for the first time as well, forcing a pair of McNair INTs (Kirkland, Woolford). Greg Lloyd also makes his presence known with rumblin', stumblin', bumblin' 61-yd fumble recovery that results in a Steelers TD by Jason Gildon. After falling behind 37-9, Tennessee adds a few garbage points late, but this one is a blowout from the start.
