1983 Steelers 40 at Oilers 28

A rare game with action from rookie Gabe "SeƱor Sack Sack" Rivera (#69), who draws constant double teams and records a sack. Franco Harris gains over 100 yards and moves into 2nd place on the all-time rushing yardage list. Contrary to the implication of the high final score, the Steeler defense is marvelous while the Steeler offense moves in fits and starts. Archie Manning spends most of the game looking out his ear hole and has an abysmal game for the Oilers, throwing 3 Ints in the 1st half alone. Stoudt doesn't fair much better, however, and Houston's turnovers yield only 4 Anderson FGs. The 2nd half is all Steelers, however, as Pittsburgh rolls to a 33-7 lead before Houston narrows the gap late in the game.
