1988 Steelers 26 vs Eagles 27

The Eagles score the go-ahead TD with 1:15 to play and then block Gary Anderson's 57-yd FG attempt as time expires to hand Pittsburgh a last-second "come from ahead" loss. Despite a razzle dazzle Lipps-to-Hoge TD pass and outgaining Philadelphia behind the hard running of Merrill Hoge (21 carries, 102 yds, 1 TD) and receiving of Louis Lipps (6 catches, 171 yds, 1 TD), Pittsburgh once again undoes themselves with mistakes, including a costly personal foul penalty on Greg Lloyd that overturns a Rod Woodson INT.
