– And for your random YouTube of the day: 1997, Steelers at Ravens. Baltimore dominated the first half and raced out to a 21-0 lead, before going into the break with a 24-7 advantage. The second half, however, was a completely different game. Will Blackwell faked a reverse on the opening kickoff of the second half and returned it 97 yards for a touchdown, and then Kordell Stewart took over by throwing three touchdowns (after throwing three interceptions in the first half) and running for another. It was vintage Kordell Stewart: Flashes of brilliance and moments of incompetence. When he was good, he was great. When he was bad, he was terrible. We saw the best, and worst, of everything he had to offer during this game. He clinched the wild 42-34 win with this 74-yard run in the fourth quarter.
