1989 Steelers 23 vs Chiefs 17

The Steelers squander a 16-point first half lead, falling behind 17-16 after Dwight Stone fumbles on a reverse and bats the ball toward his own goal line. K.C. pounces on the loose ball and rolls into the end zone for the go ahead score.

But a limping Bubby Brister, back from a 2-week injury hiatus, strikes right back, pump-faking and hitting Louis Lipps (7 catches, 130 yds, 2 TD) for a decisive 64-yd bomb to put the Steelers back on top.

The Chiefs are poised to retake the lead in the 4th quarter with a 1st and goal at the 2. Christian Okoye is stuffed on 1st down, stuffed on 2nd down, and on 3rd down, Rod Woodson makes an beautiful leaping INT in the end zone to end the threat. The Chiefs drive into Pittsburgh's red zone two more times late in the 4th, but both times, Dwayne Woodruff makes 4th down plays to thwart their comeback. Footage includes halftime show and commercials.
