Ian Howfield lines up for a chip shot to win the game in the final seconds and he misses, the Oilers go on to lose in OT.
Was just talking about that game with a buddy of mine last night.
That Oilers loss/choke was directly attributable to Bud Adams' influence on that team.
The only reason the Oilers didn't have a real NFL kicker that season was due to an infuriating tendency to cut corners. The Oilers figured any kicker was as good as another.
