1983 Steelers 23 vs Patriots 28

Franco, Franco, Franco... and some more Franco. :) Unfortunately, even with all that Franco, there's still enough Cliff Stoudt to cost the Steelers a game they should've won.

Franco (who surpasses O.J. Simpson as the #2 rusher of all time) puts on a rushing clinic with 102 yds on 25 carries and also leads the team in receptions (6 for 83 yds). The Steelers outgain New England 228-57 in the first half and own a 22:21-7:39 advantage in time of possession, yet trail the Patriots 14-13.

In the end, 3 interceptions by Stoudt (who is also sacked 5 times) and too many missed tackles by the Steeler secondary (which allows multiple short passes to turn into long gains, including a game-winning 76-yard TD pass late in the contest) are too much to overcome.
