1989 Steelers 7 at Broncos 34

Elway shakes off a pair of early INTs and scores a pair of second half TDs (1 running, 1 passing) to turn a close game into a laugher. Despite being dominated statistically, the Steelers trail only 13-7 at the half, thanks to a drive-ending end zone INT by Rod Woodson and a Bryan Hinkle INT at the Denver 22, setting up a 15-yd Brister TD pass. But Elway opens things up with a 44-yd TD bomb to Vance Johnson late in the third quarter and Denver breaks the game open midway through the 4th quarter when Steelers punter, Harry Newsome fails to handle a high snap. Newsome is tackled at the 2-yd line, and on the next play, Elway runs it in for the score and the rout is on.
