1994 Steelers 17 vs Browns 7

A HUGE game to decide the division crown! The Steelers strike quickly following a bone-headed Cleveland offsides penalty that turns a 4th down punting situation into a huge Pittsburgh 1st down. Neil O'Donnell immediately capitalizes, hitting Yancey Thigpen for a stunning 40-yd TD bomb on the very next play. Thigpen adds insult to injury by pulling out a hidden Terrible Towel and waving it gleefully in the end zone. The seemingly shell-shocked Browns go 3-and-out on their first drive and Pittsburgh immediately mounts a second seemingly effortless TD drive, going 84 yds in 10 plays capped by Barry Foster's 1-yard plunge to take a 14-0 first quarter lead. At that point, the Bill Cowher lets the air out of the ball as Barry Foster slashes his way for 106 yds on 32 carries and the Steelers never look back en route to a convincing AFC Central Division title.

Man I tell you, the 90's made Steelers football fun again. They had plenty of talent to go to more than one Superbowl that decade. I believe if Barry Foster stayed healthy he could of had a Hall of Fame career but then again if he stayed with the team for at least another year longer we never would of enjoyed Bettis.

I enjoy watching the 90's as much as I do the 70's.

I'm with you. I loved the teams from the Woodson/Lloyd/Greene Blitzburgh era. I'm still more of a '70s guy, but I really enjoy these 90's games, too.

I'm going to post the entire '94 & '95 seasons over the next month or so.

I can't believe the crowd noise. I've never been to Heinz for a game, but I don't think the intensity from the fans these days is a poor substitute.

The 90's was some of the best championshipless football in team history. How they managed to avoid a Superbowl is beyond amazing. What a team.
