1978 AFCC - Steelers score 17 points in 48 seconds

This clip is the final 1:17 of the first half from the cold, sloppy '78 AFC Championship game. The score is 14-3 as halftime approaches when suddenly, within a span of just 48 seconds, the Steelers explode for 17 points in a stunning display of power. Bradshaw hits Swann in double coverage with a perfect 29-yard rainbow for a TD to increase Pittsburgh's lead to 21-3. The Oilers fumble away the ensuing kickoff and Bradshaw immediately fires a laser to Stallworth for another score. After the kickoff, Houston fumbles again on the first play from scrimmage and the Steelers add a FG before halftime for an insurmountable 31-3 lead.
