1978 Steelers 21 at Broncos 17
Decent video quality, but severely edited huddles

Bradshaw and Stallworth are superb as the Steelers jump out to 21-0 lead at Mile High Stadium in the final game of the regular seasons and then watch from the bench as the Steeler reserves hold off the Broncos in a tune up for the playoffs.

Action is highlighted by a ridiculous leaping TD grab in traffic by Stallworth, who outleaps and out-muscles two Denver defenders in the end zone to reel in a bomb from a scrambling Bradshaw. Terry, who plays only the first half, ties the NFL record for most TD passes in a season since the NFL/AFL merger on the score to Stallworth, then takes it all for himself minutes later with a scrambling across-the-grain strike to Jim Smith for his 28th TD pass of the season.

Denver comes back late in the game against Pittsburgh's second team players threatens to steal a win after a 48-yd pass interference call in the end zone on a Hail Mary puts the ball on the Steeler 1-yd line with 7 seconds left. But the Steel Curtain stuff Denver's goal line plunge as regulation ends to preserve the victory.

I have two versions of this game: This version has decent video quality initially but has severely edited huddles and deteriorates as the game progresses (flickers between color and black & white). The other version is largely unedited but the video quality is not very good.
