1983 Steelers 27 at Seahawks 21

Franco Harris, seemingly drinking from the Fountain of Youth, rushes for 132 yds on 31 carries, including a 9-yd TD as Pittsburgh withstands a 2nd-half comeback bid by Seattle. Harris scores on the Steelers' first possession while Cliff Stoudt and Frank Pollard add TDs on 1-yd runs in the 2nd quarter to build a 24-0 halftime lead.

But Dave Krieg, who replaces an ineffective Jim Zorn (1 of 8, 2 yds, 1 INT, 3 sacks), rallies the Seahawks for 3 scores in the final 16 minutes. The Seahawks are threatening again before turning the ball over on downs with a little more than a minute to play. Krieg completes 13 of 20 for 214 yds and 2 TDs.

Halftime features a report on the 1983 terrorist suicide bombing of a Marine barracks in Beirut, Lebanon which killed 241 American peacekeeping troops.
