1996 Steelers 13 at Oilers 23

Trailing 13-9 in the 4th quarter of a very evenly matched contest that features tons of trash talk prior to the game, the Oilers score 2 TDs in a span of 2 minutes to break things open. Houston's first TD of the game comes on a 34-yd hitch-and-go from Chandler to Willie Davis that burns Rod Woodson with 5 minutes to play, giving Houston a 16-13 lead. On Pittsburgh's next offensive play, the ball is swatted out of Mike Tomczak's hand as he drops back to pass. John Jackson initially appears to recover it between his knees, but the ball squirts out of the pile and as Bettis stoops to pick it up, he's knocked off the ball by LB Barren Wortham who recovers at the Steelers 5-yd line. Three plays later, Eddie George takes it in from 2 yards out to give the Oilers a 23-13 win. Video features several pregame clips about the brawls and trash talk from the previous Steelers/Oilers game.
