1996 Steelers 31 vs Ravens 17

The Steelers pound the Baltimore "Browns" in home opener. I attended this game and it was one of the strangest scenes I've ever witnessed... Steelers fans and Browns fans practically arm-in-arm uniting against the Ravens. I'm telling you, it was freaky. There were people at the gates handing out orange arm bands to show solidarity with the Browns (I refused to wear one, but many Steelers fans did). Had I not seen it with my own eyes, I would've never believed it possible. Woodson sets the tone by intercepting Testeverde's first pass and returning to for a 43-yd TD and sets up another score by recovering a Testaverde fumble. Offensively, Bettis scores a TD and grinds out 116 yds on 21 carries and Tomczak tosses a pair of TDs (Hastings and Johnson).

Dude... I just realized!!! I was there for Jerome's first 100-yd game as a Steeler (this one) and I was there for his last 100-yard game (2005 vs Chicago).  Rockon Pi_heartbeating
