Number 6: January 14th 1996 – Ernie Mills’ Huge Catch at the 1-yard Line vs Indy in the AFC Title Game

The Steelers seemed doomed vs the Colts, much like one season before, when they blew a lead to the Chargers in the AFC Championship game at home. This time, they would not be denied. After making good on a 4th-and-3 play with the Steelers trailing 16-13, Neil O’Donnell went for the kill vs an aggressive Colts defense, and he looked deep for Ernie Mills, a wide out the Steelers had taken in the 3rd round of the 1991 draft out of Florida. Mills beat Colts CB Ashley Ambrose on the play, and hauled in a perfect pass from O’Donnell for 37 yards that set the Steelers up at the Colts one. Two plays later, Byron “Bam” Morris went in for the TD and after a failed Hail Mary pass from the Colts, the Steelers were off to Super Bowl XXX.
