To celebrate the 45th season of "Monday Night Football," a panel of ESPN.com contributors has selected the 45 most memorable moments in MNF history. Follow along as we reveal one per day and count down to this season's MNF debut.

No. 28: Chiefs 31, Broncos 28 | Oct. 17, 1994


The Kansas City Chiefs had not won at Mile High Stadium in 11 straight attempts dating back to 1982 when quarterback Joe Montana and the team rolled into Denver to take on John Elway and the Broncos in Week 7 of what would be Montana's final season.

The Chiefs held a 24-21 lead late in the fourth quarter when Elway took control. He capped off a scoring drive with a 4-yard scramble to give the Broncos a 28-24 lead with 1:29 to play.

Not to be outdone, Montana would methodically march the Chiefs down the field, going 7-of-8 for 75 yards, including a game-winning 5-yard pass to wide receiver Willie Davis with 8 seconds remaining.

Montana finished the game with 393 passing yards, the most of his two seasons in Kansas City. And the Chiefs' star QB would exit the game with 16 more completions and 130 more yards than Elway.
