1979 Steelers 30 at Chiefs 3

Total domination. The Steel Curtain is definitely on their game and absolutely chokes the life out of Kansas City's offense, allowing only 127 total yds (65 rushing and 62 passing) and giving rookie QB Steve Fuller a brutal pounding with 5 sacks.

Meanwhile, Pittsburgh's offense is nearly unstoppable, racking up a 20-0 halftime lead on the strength of Bradshaw TD passes to Stallworth (4 rec, 88 yds, 1 TD) who makes a leaping grab on a razzle-dazzle flea-flicker on Pittsburgh's opening drive, and Swann (5 rec, 55 yds, 1 TD) who makes an eye-popping "how'd he get both feet down?" TD catch in the back of the end zone.

Bradshaw, despite playing with severe back spasms, finishes an impressive 17 of 29 for 232 yds and 3 TDs, and the 30-3 final score marks the 4th straight game the Steel Curtain holds their opponent to 7 points or less.

This upgraded video has been created by splicing two versions. The first 2-hours are very clean video quality ending with the Steelers leading 30-3 (3 minutes left in regulation), spliced with slightly lower quality video to complete the game. Footage includes a short postgame segment focused on the incredible depth of the '79 Steelers team.
