2002 Steelers 34 vs Falcons 34 OT

The Steelers somehow snatch a tie from the jaws of victory in spite of holding a 17-point 4th quarter lead, in spite of Tommy Maddox going 28 of 42 for a club record 473 yards and 4 TDs, in spite of Plaxico Burress grabbing 9 passes for a club record 253 yards, in spite of Hines Ward snagging 11 catches for 139 yards and in spite of Amos Zereoue rushing for 123 yards. Horrific kicker Todd Peterson misses 2 FGs and a PAT, and Michael Vick & company take full advantage with a late rally to force overtime. The game ends with Tommy Maddox hitting Plaxico for a 50-yard Hail Mary at the 1-yard line and Burress is tackled just short of the goal line as time expires in OT. So close...
