1990 Steelers 34 at Broncos 17

Bubby Brister has a monster game against the injury-depleted Broncos secondary, completing 21 of 28 passes for 353 yds and 4 TDs, 3 of them to rookie TE Eric Green. Louis Lipps also exploits Denver's inexperienced secondary, hauling in 9 catches for 141 yards and Bubby's other TD. The Broncos actually jump out to a 17-7 lead early in the 2nd quarter before Pittsburgh goes on a tear, scoring 27 unanswered points. Things could've been even worse for Denver, because the Steelers leave points of the field after a 90-yd pass reception by Dwight Stone (Warren Williams fumbles into the end zone) and again after Donald Evans returns an Elway fumble 59 yds to the Denver 11 in the closing seconds (the Steelers allow time to expire).
