1995 Steelers 20 vs Browns 3 MNF

Slash! Rookie Kordell Stewart throws his first career TD pass and Erric Pegram rushes for 112 yards as the Steelers whip the lethargic Bill Belichick-coached Cleveland Browns and take control of the AFC Central. Johnson kicks two FGs and O'Donnell adds a 4th-quarter TD pass as the Steelers win their 3rd straight.

Stewart, in a formation foretelling things to come, lines up behind center with the game scoreless in the 2nd quarter and Pittsburgh at the Cleveland 2. Stewart rolls right and is cut off. With no receivers open, he sprints back left and looks as if he is going to run, but he pulls up at the last moment and lofts a pass to Mills drifting across the back of the end zone.

Stewart, who catches 2 passes for 21 yards, also picks up a key 1st down in the 4th quarter when he runs 11 yards on an option. Five plays later, O'Donnell hits Thigpen with a 9-yard scoring toss. The Browns manage just 120 yards, only 10 of which came in the 2nd half (with ZERO first downs)! Cleveland goes 1-of-10 on 3rd-down conversions and is sacked 4 times.
