1985 Steelers 23 vs Broncos 31

Elway shakes off a near-disastrous interception and the Broncos score 2 TDs in 21 seconds to escape with a 31-23 victory after a wild, 35-point 4th quarter in which the Steelers come back from a 17-9 deficit to take a 23-17 lead on Mike Merriweather's 35-yd INT return with 5:02 to play.

But Elway is Elway and Elway and connects on consecutive passes of 19, 6 and 27 yds on a 58-yd scoring drive capped by Sewell's 2-yd run to take a 24-23 lead with 1:45 to play. The Steelers have one last gasp, but David Woodley -- who is intercepted 4 times and sacked 5 times -- adds an insurance score for Denver with a bad INT that Mike Harden returns 42 yds for a TD just 21 seconds after Sewell's score.
