Cleveland drove down the field and kicked a FG with about 20 seconds left. Made the game 39-37. Anyway, there's 6 secs left and KC is at midfield for a final Hail Mary. Dwayne Rudd gets to Trent Green and pulls him down.......only he THINKS he pulls him down. Green got the ball away to an offensive lineman, who rumbled way down the field. Clock runs out, game over right??
Only problem is that when Rudd thought he sacked Green, he took off his helmet and threw it across the field.......but the play was still going on!!!
Therefore, Cleveland gets an Unsportsmanlike Conduct penalty and adds 15 yards to the end of the play. And because the game can't end on a defensive penalty, the Chiefs get a free play with no time on the clock. And this play is a short 30-yard FG by Morton Anderson to win it.
Needless to say, the Cleveland faithful were not happy.
