1990 Steelers 21 vs Falcons 9

The Steelers fumble the opening kickoff and are shut out in the first half, trailing 9-0 at the break. But Bubby Brister (11 of 17, 216 yds, 2 TD, 0 Int) throws a pair of second-half TD passes (Louis Lipps and Mike Mularkey) and Pittsburgh's #2-ranked defense picks off 3 Chris Miller passes to win for the 4th time in 5 games. The Falcons threaten late, driving to the Steeler 22 before Mike Rozier fumbles it away on a direct snap (punched out by Bryan Hinkle, who also ends up with the recovery), and even though the whistle appears to prematurely blow before the Steelers gain possession, the officials award the ball to Pittsburgh. Three plays later, as the clock winds toward the 2-minute warning, Warren Williams puts an exclamation point on the win, bursting untouched through the line on 3rd down and racing 70 yds all alone for a TD.
