1997 Steelers 24 at Patriots 21 OT

Facing a seemingly insurmountable 21-13 deficit late in the 4th quarter, Kevin Henry makes the play of the season when he intercepts Drew Bledsoe at the Patriots 41-yd line and returns it to the Patriot 18. Then, on 4th-and-7, Yancey Thigpen makes an incredible diving grab while barely keeping both feet inbounds at the 4 with a minute to go. Two plays later, Stewart rolls right and tosses a 1-yard TD to Bruener, cutting the deficit to 21-19 with 38 seconds remaining. Stewart rolls right again on the conversion attempt and threads the needle to Thigpen, who makes the sliding grab in the back of the end zone to tie the game. Norm Johnson kicks a 44 yarder in overtime to seal a thriller.
