1979 Steelers 27 at Jets 14 Preseason

The Steelers starters overwhelm the Jets, scoring 3 times in the 2nd quarter (Franco scores on a 1-yd run, Gerela kicks a 48-yd FG and Stallworth makes a one-handed snare of a Bradshaw pass for 30-yd TD) for a 17-0 halftime lead. The Jets finally get on the board in the 4th on a 91-yd return of a blocked Gerela FG (footage of this play is missing) and get as close as 20-14 despite being dominated. But the Steelers add a late TD to finish them off, 27-14.
