1980 Steelers 24 at Buccaneers 21
With their offense weakened by the absence of Franco and nagging injuries to Bradshaw & a host of other Steeler starters, Pittsburgh needs a big game from their defense & special teams to win. They get it.
Ham & Shell force an early fumble to set up a FG. Dirt Winston pounces on a blocked punt in the endzone for the Steelers' 1st TD. Ham & Lambert team up to force a Ricky Bell fumble, and with Tampa Bay threatening at the Steeler 25 late in the game, Joe Greene tips a Doug Williams pass & Donnie Shell makes a great leaping INT at the 10 to save the game.
This game footage is spliced from 2 recorded versions. The first section (pregame and early 1st quarter) has "edited huddles" and then more complete footage with fewer edits kicks in.
