1987 Steelers 17 at Chiefs 16

Rod Woodson's first-ever game as a pro. Pittsburgh plays an embarrassingly ugly game offensively, but the Chiefs play even uglier allowing Gary Anderson, thanks to a late fumble by Christian Okoye, to redeem himself for an earlier miss. Mike Merriweather (1 INT, 2-1/2 sacks), Earnest Jackson (23 carries, 125 yds) and Walter Abercrombie (16 carries, 98 yds) are bright spots for Pittsburgh, but the only thing more abysmal than Mark Malone's QB play (14 of 31, 157 yds, 2 TD, 2 INT, 1 fumble returned for a TD) is Bill Kenney's pathetic performance at QB for the Chiefs (14 of 29, 155 yds, 0 TD, 4 INT).

Pittsburgh's defense, on the other hand, plays a fantastic game. Along with Merriweather's heroics, Thomas Everett steals an underthrown pass on the Pittsburgh 9-yd line and Dwayne Woodruff intercepts another on the Pittsburgh 3 and the Steelers hold KC without an offensive TD despite constantly having their backs agains the wall due to 4 Pittsburgh turnovers.
