1991 Steelers 20 vs Giants 23 MNF

Trailing 20-0 and showing nothing offensively late in the 3rd, Neil O'Donnell replaces Bubby Brister and leads the Steelers on a furious comeback, first driving the Steelers to a pair of quick Gary Anderson FGs, then connecting with Louis Lipps for a 16-yd TD to narrow the score to 20-13 with 4-1/2 minutes left. After the defense stops the Giants for a third straight series, O'Donnell leads a 68-yd drive in only 1:29, capping it with a 5-yd TD to Eric Green to tied the score 20-20 with 50 seconds left. But the officials throw a "excessive celebration" flag (one of the most ridiculous rules ever) pushing the kickoff back and in a critical blunder, Anderson kicks the ball out of bounds setting the Giants up with great field position at the 40. Hostetler hits Meggett for 16 and scrambles for 18 more to set up former Steeler Matt Bahr at the Pittsburgh 26, and Bahr hits the 44-yarder with 4 seconds to go. A special thanks to Jay Korber for generously providing us with this game!
