1985 Steelers 7 at Browns 17 MNF

A pair of Mark Malone INTs in the 4th-quarter seal a frustrating 17-7 Monday night loss in the Dawg Pound. The Browns lead 10-0 after 3 quarters, but a nifty 38-yd punt return by Louis Lipps sets Pittsburgh up at the Cleveland 15 early in the 4th quarter and in a rare bright spot, Malone immediately hits Stallworth for a TD to pull the Steelers within 10-7. The Steelers have the ball and a chance to take the lead late, but backup LB Curtis Weathers sacks Malone at the Steeler 9-yd line and then intercepts him on the next play to set up the clinching score, a 21-yd burst by Earnest Byner with 2:37 remaining. Malone caps a miserable 18-of-45 performance with another INT in the final seconds. Thanks to Jay Korber for providing us with this game! 
Among them in this tape is portion of WEWS-TV 5 Special "Browns Town Monday Night" hosted by former Browns Offensive Tackle and current Cleveland Browns Radio Network Color Analyst Doug Dieken and former WEWS-TV 5 Sports Director and former voice of the Cleveland Browns Radio Network, the late Nev Chandler.  McMillen and Wife, the full version of 1985 Browns Town Monday Night on WEWS-TV 5, Cleveland, Ohio before ABC MNF between the Steelers and the Cleveland Browns can be seen on Comrade Dobler YouTube page.

(For those of you who like old commercials, there's a cute one for Jeopardy with Alex Trebek, then only in its second season of syndication, believe it or not.)
After the game, a brief editorial by ABC network president Jim Duffy called "American Television and You".
