1984 AFC Playoffs Steelers 24 at Broncos 17
Complete NBC Broadcast with Dick Enberg & Merlin Olsen calling the game


Everyone in Denver was making plans for the upcoming AFC Championship duel between John Elway and Dan Marino. SURPRISE!!! Even Craig Colquitt's first-ever blocked punt and a trio of highly uncharacteristic Gary Anderson FG misses can't stop Pittsburgh from toppling the heavily favored Broncos in front of a stunned crowd at Mile High Stadium.

With just under 3 minutes remaining, safety Eric Williams picks off an ill-advised Elway pass and returns it to the Bronco 2-yard line. Three plays later, great second effort by Frank Pollard (17 carries, 107 yds, 2 TD) punches it over the goal line and secures a shocking Pittsburgh win!

Note: There are two versions of this game, both have excellent video quality. This version is an outstanding quality version of the NBC broadcast with the radio call from Jack Fleming and Myron Cope dubbed in but missing the final 1:02 of the game. The other version is a slightly lesser-quality but 100% complete NBC broadcast with Dick Enberg and Merlin Olsen calling the game.
