1988 Steelers 28 at Bills 36
Scott Norwood kicks 5 FGs and the Bills score a pair of 3rd-quarter TDs in a span of 2 minutes to turn a competitive game into a laugher. The Steelers trail only 16-14 at halftime, but Robb Riddick extends Buffalo's lead to 23-14 midway through the 3rd quarter on a 4th and goal 1-yd run. Steve Tasker blocks a Pittsburgh punt 2 minutes later later and Riddick scoops up the ball and scrambles 5 yds for a TD to make it 30-14. Norwood adds 2 more FGs in the 4th quarter after a Darryl Talley fumble recovery and a Brister INT by Kelso.
Trailing 36-14, Pittsburgh rallies with 2 TDs in the final 2 minutes following a Brister 1-yd plunge, a recovered onside kick and a 42-yd TD pass to Weegie Thompson. But a sloppy performance which includes 2 INTs, 3 lost fumbles and 2 blocked punts is ultimately too much for the Steelers to overcome.
