1996 Steelers 16 vs Chargers 3

Not the prettiest of wins with the teams combining for 8 turnovers in the snow and cold, but still enough to wrap up the AFC Central title for Pittsburgh. The Steelers jump ahead 13-0 early on a pair of Norm Johnson FG's and a TD pass to Andre Hastings, then hold the Chargers to 3 points on 4 drives into Pittsburgh territory in the second half. Mike Tomczak and Sean Salisbury each finish with QB ratings of 34 and even Jerome Bettis fails to gain his customary 100 yds. But Pittsburgh's defense shines, forcing 2 fumbles, an INT and a turnover on downs whiles sacking Salisbury 5 times and holding San Diego to just 65 yds rushing and 148 total yds.
