1983 Steelers 17 vs Buccaneers 12

The Steelers overcome 7 turnovers (including 3 first half INTs by Stoudt) by jamming 17 points into the final 9 minutes of the game, capped by Frank Pollard's 2-yd game winner with just 31 seconds left to steal a victory from the hapless 0-9 Bucs.

Tampa Bay RB James Wilder sets an NFL record with 42 carries (breaking Franco's '76 record of 41 carries in a game) for 126 yds, but the Bucs can only manage 4 FGs, allowing the Pittsburgh comeback.

Features 20 minutes of pregame hosted by Rocky Bleier and featuring OT Ted Petersen.
