1996 Steelers 24 vs Bills 6 MNF

Blitzburgh converts all 3 of Jim Kelly's 2nd quarter INTs in points, including Carnell Lake's decisive 47-yd pick six on the final play of the 1st half as the Steelers rout the Bills yet again on Monday Night Football. Jerome Bettis pounds Buffalo for 133 yds and 2 TDs and Kordell Stewart in his role as "Slash" turns a seemingly routine screen pass into an electrifying 48-yd gain to set up Bettis' first TD on a 1-yd plunge. Bettis' second score comes on a punishing blast up the middle in which Bettis crashes through the line and simply shrugs off would-be tackles by a LB and both safeties en route to a 43-yd back-breaking TD. Erric Pegram adds 84 yds as the Steelers out-rush the Bills 222-86 and defeat Buffalo in Pittsburgh for the 4th straight year. Video includes lots of postgame content including highlights and interviews with Lake, Kirkland and Bettis and an "Up Close" interview with Rod Woodson.

Bettis looked like a man amongst boys in this one. Could have had 200+ rushing yards easily had it not been such a blowout and had Pegram not been a part of the rotation at the time.
