1986 Steelers 10 at Bears 13 OT

The Bears squeak out an ugly win in OT on a 42-yd FG by Kevin Butler (who redeems himself for a missed 28-yd FG with 50-seconds left in regulation) in a mistake-filled game with QB play by Malone and Tomczak that sets the position back decades. Chicago forces turnovers on Pittsburgh's first 2 drives but converts them into only 3 points. After driving to the Steeler 7, Walter Payton coughs up the ball and the Steelers recover in the end zone. Even Pittsburgh's lone TD is the result of a mistake after a bad snap on a FG attempt results into a fluke 12-yd TD pass by holder Harry Newsome over Richard Dent. But a 4th quarter INT by Mike Singletary turns into a 96-yd drive for Chicago, capped by a 3-yd TD run by Payton, sending the game to OT. Includes commercials and halftime show including a Bob Costas interview with Max McGee and Fred "The Hammer" Williamson. A special thanks to Matthew Simon for generously providing us with this game! 
I think Lipps was KO'd in this game by Otis Wilson or Wilbur Marshall.

It was Wilson who delivered the knockout. Lipps was barely off the LOS when Wilson decked him with a forearm to the head. Definitely a cheap shot.
