1995 Steelers 41 vs Patriots 27

Mills catches a 62-yard TD pass with 1:28 remaining and Chris Oldham returns a fumble for a score 19 seconds later as the Steelers hold off a late comeback by New England and defeat the Pats, 41-27. The Steelers (11-4) win their 8th straight game by scoring a pair of TDs in the final two minutes of each half, including defensive scores by cornerback Oldham and defensive end Brentson Buckner. Buckner's TD is hillarious... there's nothing quite like watching a huge defensive lineman rumble 50+ yards with the football. Pittsburgh clinches a 1st-round bye in the playoffs. Bledsoe completes 39 of 60 passes for 336 yards and 3 TDs, including 11 passes for 87 yards and two scores to TE Ben Coates. The Patriots rally from a 24-12 deficit and tie the game at 27-27 before Mills catches O'Donnell's short pass and races past safety Terry Ray for a TD.

The secondary that year suffered after Rod got hurt, but timely turnovers (Like in this game) and the play at DE of Ray Seals (who should have been All Pro) and Brentson Buckner smashing quarterbacks covered up some mistakes.

Oldham was a Jack of all trades that season, did a lot of the little things well enough to stay on the field.

Ray Seals was a BEAST in '95.  Pi_sharpteeth

Sad that he was inspired by his cousin's murder but damn he was really good that last 10 games or so.  

Seals and Buckner's 1995 performances are the examples I always give when people say our DE's in this defense aren't designed to sack QB's.  Buckner was the windshield and Jim Harbaugh was the bug on that hit in the last drive of that AFC title game.  Can't believe Harbaugh got up.  

It was never a scheme issue for our DE's, it's a talent issue.
