1995 Steelers 34 at Oilers 17

Andre Hastings returns a punt 72 yards for a TD, Carnell Lake scores on a 32-yard interception return and linebacker Chad Brown has 3 sacks as the Steelers rout the Oilers. Blitzburgh racks up 5 sacks and 2 INTs to shut down the Oilers, who are never really in the game. Hastings' punt return comes just 1:11 into the game and the Steelers roll from there. Del Greco's 43-yard FG pulls Houston within 7-3, but Mike Tomczak (filling in for an injured Neil O'DOnnell) hits Mark Bruener for a 15-yard TD pass for a 14-3 Pittsburgh advantage as the 1st quarter ends. Norm Johnson adds a 43-yard field goal just before halftime to extend Pittsburgh's lead to 17-3 and Fred McAfee's 22-yard TD run early in the 3rd quarter breaks the game open. Carnell Lake returns a Chris Chandler INT 32 yards for a TD early in the 4th for a 31-10 lead and the rout is on.

Hahahaha Bobby April jumping up and down during Hastings return.

They beat the piss out of Chris Chandler in this game and he entered the game playing hurt.

You can see by the half empty stadium that this was when the Oilers were about to leave Houston. The fans weren't showing up there anymore knowing that the move was eminent. What used to be a noisy House of Pain was a House of Quiet and Empty for this one.
