RADIO ONLY - 1975 AFC Playoffs Steelers 28 vs Colts 10

Armed Forces RADIO BROADCAST ONLY with Don Criqui & Al Wester. Andy Russell seals it with a 93-yd return of a Bert Jones fumble dubbed "the longest, slowest TD ever witnessed." Despite 5 turnovers, but the Steel Curtain forces 3 turnovers and 5 sacks and holds Baltimore to just 154 yds. Meanwhile, Franco runs roughshod over the Colts, piling up 153 yds and a TD on 27 carries.

Pittsburgh scores first after Bert Jones is injured and Jack Ham picks off backup Marty Domres to set up Franco's TD. Lloyd Mumphord returns a Bradshaw INT 58 yds to set up a Domres TD pass (1 of only 2 completions in 11 attempts). A Franco fumble sets up a FG to gove the Colts a surpizing 10-7 lead midway through the 3rd quarter. But Mel Blount returns an INT to the Colts 7 and Bleier powers into the end zone a play later for a 14-10 lead.

With 6 minutes left in the game, a hobbling Terry Bradshaw (injured late in the first half) dives into the end zone for a 2-yd TD. Trailing 21-10, Bert Jones returns and valiantly leads the Colts to the Steeler 3-yd line. But a blitzing Jack Ham blindsides Jones and forces a fumble. Russell scoops it up and lopes 93 yds and the rest is history.
