1998 Steelers 20 at Chiefs 13
Special teams, turnovers and penalties are the difference. After downing a punt inside the 1 for the Chief's opening possession, reserve DB Lance Brown pours in untouched to block Aguiar's punt in the end zone, recovered by Fred McAfee for a Steeler TD. On the 2nd half kickoff, a holding penalty on KC negates 95-yd TD kick return. Bettis is a battering ram, punishing the Chiefs for 119 yds on 33 carries. Features a 3rd quarter gadget play in which Stewart pitches the ball to Hines Ward, who throws a pass back to Stewart for a 17-yd gain to set up a FG. With the Steelers leading 20-13 in the 4th, a would-be game-tying TD bomb bounces harmlessly off Andre Rison's facemask. The Steelers force a Grbac INT and fumble in the final minutes of the game to preserve this Monday Night football win.
