5. 1994 Week 6 – Kansas City Chiefs at Denver Broncos
Anybody who watched this game will never forget it. This contest diodn’t have a ton of meaning in the standings, with the Broncos missing the playoffs thanks to a losing record and the Chiefs only going 9-7 and barely making the postseason.
It didn’t matter and it still doesn’t. This game was one of the greatest of all-time.
In Joe Montana’s last season, the Chiefs met the Denver Broncos at Mile High Stadium on Monday night in front of a national audience. The game would feature a slew of lead changes and two of the greatest quarterbacks to ever lace ’em up going at it, with Montana and John Elway trading haymakers all evening.
In the fourth quarter, Elway called his own number and ran a quarterback draw into the end zone to take a 28-24 lead in the final two minutes. It appeared all hope was lost, but Montana had one great comeback left in the satchel. Starting the drive from his own 25-year line, Montana guided Kansas City to the doorstep.
With 13 seconds remaining, Montana dropped back and fired a pass into the front right corner of the end zone, hitting Willie Davis for a game-winning touchdown. It was the first win of Marty Schotteheimer’s career at Mile High, and a game that will live on as one of the great duels between two legendary players.
