In the 1969 American Football League championship game, the Kansas City Chiefs found themselves in trouble. Backed up against their own goal line in the third quarter of a 7-7 contest against the Oakland Raiders, Kansas City was looking down the barrel of a 3rd and 16. Instead of running to gain more room for a punt, the Chiefs decided to go for broke down the right sideline on a deep bomb for Otis Taylor.

Taylor caught the ball but clearly only got one foot in bounds. On the replay, the official clearly begins to call the play an incomplete pass before getting screamed at by the entire Kansas City sideline. The official reverses his call and gives the Chiefs a huge first down near midfield. The drive ended in a touchdown and the Chiefs went on to win at the Oakland Coliseum, 17-7. It was the final game ever played between two AFL teams.
