1986 Steelers 22 at Bengals 24 MNF
With the Steelers reeling at 1-5, rookie QB Bubby Brister gets his first NFL start. Bubby is far from great, hitting only 12 of 33 and missing on 8 straight passes at one point. But Bubby also brings some much-needed positive energy to the Steelers, driving them inside Bengal 10 early in the game (only to have Gary Anderson miss a critical chip-shot FG), then following a blocked punt, Brister scores on a QB sneak to tie the game 7-7.
The Steelers actually lead 19-14 after 3 quarters, but as losing teams so often do, the Steelers find new and embarrassing ways to lose. On 4th and 12 from their own 39, Bengals punter Jeff Hayes -- who had 1 punt blocked previously in the game and also gave up a safety -- fakes the punt and races 61 yds, completely untouched, to the end zone to give the Bengals a 21-19 lead that they never relinquish. Frank Gifford and Lynn Swann on the call for Monday Night Football.
