1978 Steelers 7 at Rams 10 SNF

A rare (for the era) Sunday night football game. Action begins in second half of this penalty-filled "Mud Bowl" when Swann makes a fantastic leaping grab in the back of the endzone (while being blatantly interferred with) for the first score of the game. L.A. strikes right back, moving quickly downfield for a FG and from there, the two best defenses in the league slug it out. With the Steelers continually pinned deep in their own territory, Cappelletti finally breaks a 26-yard run to set up a short Haden TD pass and a 10-7 Rams win. Features the top two defenses in the league at their best. 2nd half only with some edited huddles.

If I'm not mistaken. The Steelers have never beaten the rams in LA.

Well... unless you count Super Bowl XIV.  Pi_bigsmile  I guess "technically" that was in Pasadena, but... same dif. 

Other than that, you're right. Pretty surprising, actually!
Don't forget, there are bonus highlights from This Week in Pro Football on the left side of the game description!
