1985 Steelers 20 vs Oilers 0

The Steelers defense limits Houston to just 50 yds rushing and 84 yds passing en route to their first shutout since 1981. Pittsburgh gets off to a fast start as Mark Malone throws a pair of TD passes to Louis Lipps in the 1st quarter. The venerable Donnie Shell has a fantastic game, setting up one of Malone's TDs with his 44th career INT and also paves the way to one of Gary Anderson's FGs with a fumble recovery. Warren Moon is smothered, passing for only 92 yds with 1 INT and losing 17 yds on 3 sacks, Mike Rozier gains only 21 yds rushing and the Oilers finish with just 8 first downs. A big-time thanks to Jay Korber for providing us with this game! 
After the game, several segments from the following week's edition of Steelers '85, including a look at the Bengals with many Steeler player interviews, a feature on the Steelers-Bengals rivalry with too many factual errors to count, and a picks segment with Rocky and Jim Brinson (they both pick the Steelers against the Bengals, although Brinson says he picked the Browns before Week 2's Monday night game).
