1995 Steelers 29 at Raiders 10

In spite of a rocky start, this is the game when I knew for sure the Steelers had what it took to get to the Super Bowl. Joined in progress with 2:28 remaining in 1st quarter and the Steelers leading 7-0 courtesy of an O'Donnell to Mills pass. O'Donnell struggles early, throwing a horrible pass at the goal line that is tipped and intercepted for an easy 1-yd Raider score. A few plays later, O'Donnell throws a "Garo Yepremian-esque" interception at midfield for another apparent TD. Fortunately for the Steelers, a blind ref rules O'Donnell in the grasp, the TD is overturned and the Steelers retain possession. Neil eventually composes himself and from that point on, the Steelers OWN the Raiders. A great Greg Lloyd INT at midfield with 0:30 left in the half sets up a TD pass to Mills (keyed by a long reception by Kordell) giving the Steelers a commanding 20-7 lead at halftime. Erric Pegram plays a great game with 122 yds on 26 carries.

At least Neil O'Donnell didn't have "baby hair" his entire life, lol....

Garo used to say that he went to "Bald State".
