2009 Steelers 14 at Bears 17

A game the Steelers could've and should've won if not for missed kicks by Jeff Reed. Each of the Steelers' final 2 drives lasts 10 plays and each takes more than 8 minutes off the clock. Unfortunately, each drive also ends with a wide-left FG attempt by Reed. The first miss from the Chicago 20 denies the Steelers an opportunity to take a 17-7 lead early in the 4th. The second miss, coming after Chicago ties the score on a Cutler TD pass, comes from the Chicago 25 with just over 3 minutes remaining. That leaves enough time for Cutler to engineer an 8-play drive capped by Robbie Gould's game-winning 44-yd FG in the rain with 11 seconds remaining.
