Matthew David Bahr (born July 6, 1956 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) is a former professional American football placekicker in the National Football League. He attended Neshaminy High School in Langhorne, Pennsylvania where he excelled in both football and soccer. He is the son of National Soccer Hall of Fame inductee Walter Bahr.
As a senior at Penn State, in 1978, Matt was a consensus All-America selection. In 1978, he signed with the Colorado Caribous of the North American Soccer League. The Caribous traded him to the Tulsa Roughnecks during the season. On March 27, 1979, he signed with the Pennsylvania Stoners of the second division American Soccer League. In May 1979, he heard that he had been drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the sixth round of the 1979 NFL Draft. His brother Chris followed a similar career path. Over his career, which spanned from 1979 to 1995, he played for the Pittsburgh Steelers, the San Francisco 49ers, the Cleveland Browns, the New York Giants, the Philadelphia Eagles and the New England Patriots. As a rookie, he won a Super Bowl ring with the Steelers in Super Bowl XIV. He is best remembered for his performance in the 1990 NFC Championship Game on January 20, 1991, as he set an NFC Championship Game record with five field goals (including a 42-yarder as time expired) to lift the Giants past the 49ers 15-13. He also kicked what would prove to be the decisive field goal in Super Bowl XXV on January 27, 1991, as the Giants beat the Buffalo Bills 20-19.
Bahr finished his 17 seasons with 300 of 415 field goals and 522 of 534 extra points. Overall, he scored a total of 1,422 points.
He is now a design engineer in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
