34. Pete Stoyanovich beats the Broncos (1997)

During the years that John Elway led the Denver Broncos, the Kansas City Chiefs usually ended up on the short end of the comeback stick. For years, Denver would find a way to destroy the Chiefs in some epic fashion. Then, in 1997, Kansas City finally got some revenge on Elway and the Broncos, in one of the wildest games ever played between the two sides.

The Chiefs were 7-3 and trailing the Broncos by two games in the AFC West in late November, hosting Denver at Arrowhead Stadium. The game went back and forth throughout, until Elway led a drive that put the Broncos ahead, 22-21. In the final moments, backup quarterback Rich Gannon drove Kansas City into the edge of field goal range, setting up Pete Stoyanovich for a 55-yard field goal attempt. On a bitter day, Stoyanovich hit a low, line drive that bested the crossbar by inches. The Chiefs went on to win the division by a single game.
