1996 AFC Playoffs Steelers 42 vs Colts 14

A second half slaughter. Anyone hoping for a repeat of the drama witnessed in the '95 version of this game was sorely disappointed... but being a Steeler freak, I was delighted with the outcome.

The highlight for me is an incredible play by Rod Woodson at the 50:56 mark where he is unable to get position to tackle Hall of Fame RB Marshall Faulk, so Rod actually picks up Hall of Fame WR Marvin Harrison -- who is attempting to block him -- and uses Harrison's body to slam Faulk to the ground!

The Colt's actually lead 14-13 at halftime, but Indy is limited to only 22 total yards while being outscored 29-0 in the second half. The Steelers offense is led by running back Jerome Bettis, who plows for 102 yards and two touchdowns on 25 carries and when it's all said & done, the total yardage is 407-146 in favor of the Steelers.
