in the 1993 AFC playoffs, the Houston Oilers were the odds-on favorite to reach the Super Bowl. As the second seed, Houston was rolling with an 12-4 record, including ending the season with 11 consecutive wins to take the AFC Central. Meanwhile, the Kansas City Chiefs barely won their Wild Card game over the Pittsburgh Steelers, needing a fourth-quarter miracle and a Nick Lowery overtime field goal.

Against Houston, the Chiefs trailed 10-0 at halftime before storming back behind Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Montana. In the third quarter, Montana hit Keith Cash for a touchdown pass, who then saw a banner with the face of Oilers defensive coordinator Buddy Ryan on it. Cash slammed the ball into Ryan’s grill and said a few expletives, something that changed the tenor of the game. Kansas City would go onto a 28-20 victory with 21 fourth-quarter points, its last postseason win to date.
