1993 Steelers 23 at Browns 28

The infamous "Metcalf Game." With Neil O'Donnell passing for a career-high 355 yds and Vinny Testaverde knocked out after a vicious 4th-quarter hit by Kevin Greene, it appears the Steelers will emerge from Cleveland Stadium with a win. Statistically, it's a game they should've won, outgaining Cleveland by more than 200 yds and owning a 13-minute advantage in time of possession.

But with a 23-21 lead and facing a fourth down on their 22-yard line, the Steelers make the mistake of punting the ball where Metcalf could return it. Metcalf had already returned a punt 91 yds for a TD early in the 2nd quarter. With 2:05 to play, Metcalf fields Royals' punt along the right sideline, picks up a pair of crushing blocks, then darts and dodges 75-yds to the end zone for the winning TD as Cleveland Municipal Stadium goes absolutely bonkers.
