1997 Steelers 20 vs Bengals 3

Blitzburgh forces 3 Jeff Blake fumbles on 4 sacks with Greg Lloyd and Kevin Henry each recording a sack and a fumble recovery. Facing cold, snowy conditions, Pittsburgh gains more yards on the ground than through the air with Jerome Bettis rushing 25 times for 101 yds and George Jones adding 64 yds on 8 carries. Kordell Stewart throws for two TDs and Yancey Thigpen catches 5 passes for 101 yds and a TD as the Steelers earn their 7th win in 8 games.

Man, not only is the quality of this conversion great, this is EXACTLY the kind of game I think about when I think of Pittsburgh Steeler football. Freezing cold temps, snow pounding down, THREE RIVERS STADIUM and it's brutally hard artificial turf, ugly (but beautiful) low-scoring game where yards are tough to come by. Great havoc-wreaking defense causing turnovers all over the field, and a reliable smash-mouth ground game led by THE BUS that just crushes a defense's morale and wears 'em down. Over 20 mins of TOP in the 2nd half. LOVE IT.
