1989 Steelers 16 vs Oilers 23

In a driving snowstorm, the indoor Oilers somehow overcome an early 10-0 deficit, 3 fumbles and a minus 25-degree wind-chill factor to take over first place in the AFC Central. The Steelers play well enough to win, but settling for a pair of FGs after twice driving inside the Houston 5 comes back to haunt them. Tim Worley gains 103 yds on 18 carries, but the Steelers eek out only 43 net passing yards behind Bubby Brister. Meanwhile, Warren Moon throws 2 TDs in the final 2 minutes of the first half and Lorenzo White runs for 115 yds, scoring the game-winning TD on a 1-yd run with 21 seconds left.
