1980 Steelers 28 at Bengals 30

The Steelers start miserably, turning the ball over on 3 consecutive plays including an INT return for a TD to give Cinci an easy 10-0 lead. But Bradshaw soon begins to dissect the Bengals secondary, hitting Smith for a 45 yard TD and Swannie for TD's of 8 and 68 yards.

Again turnovers plague the Steelers as a muffed punt leads to a Cinci TD and finally, Pollard's fumble of a kickoff in the final minutes of the game leads to the go-ahead FG for Cinci. Bradshaw moves the Steelers into position for a 51 yard FG attempt on the final play, but Bahr's kick sails wide.

This game marked the beginning of the end of the Steelers dynasty, as injuries to numerous key players would prove to be too much to overcome.
