1988 Steelers 37 at Oilers 34 SNF

In a Sunday Night game filled with big plays and a lot of disdain between the two teams, Bubby Brister completes 3 TD passes, including picture perfect long bombs of 80 and 65 yds to Louis Lipps and a 16-yd game-winner to Merril Hoge with 20 seconds left to give the Steelers a thrilling 37-34 victory. Dwight Stone gets the big plays started for Pittsburgh with an electric 92-yd kickoff return for a TD in the 2nd quarter, followed shortly thereafter by Brister's first TD bomb to Lipps for a 17-13 halftime lead. Brister connects deep with Lipps again midway through the 3rd for a 24-13 Pittsburgh lead. Despite 3 Warren Moon INTs in the 4th quarter, the Oilers get back in the game on a 90-yd kickoff return for a TD and actually take a 31-34 lead with 1:30 left in the game on a 3-yd Moon TD run. But thanks to some terrible tackling by Houston, Brister drives the Steelers 80 yds in just 6 plays capped by the winning score to Hoge. A special thanks goes out to Paul Wood for generously providing us with this game!

I should have went to this game but our flight to Houston was oversold and Dad and I couldn't get seats out on another flight the same day.  

One of the few rare games Dawson and Webster played on the same OL together.

Bubby was a cocky bastard this whole game.  I liked it.   Rockon

Laugh  Bubby certainly never lacked confidence, no matter how unjustified.  Pi_bigsmile
