1981 Steelers 31 vs Giants 6 Preseason

Game joined in progress with Steelers leading 10-0 in 2nd quarter. The Steeler offense is clicking en route to an easy win as Bradshaw throws 2 TDs and Stoudt throws 2 more while a young Phil Simms struggles for New York. A pass-happy Bradshaw throws for nearly 250 yds despite playing only one series into the 3rd quarter and being without starters Swann and Stallworth. Game features rookie LB Lawrence Taylor, strangely wearing #98 instead of #56, who makes his presence known with a 3rd quarter sack of Stoudt. Mark Malone sees significant action at WR and David Trout, whose poor kicking ultimately costs the Steelers multiple games in 1981, gets rave reviews for his deep kickoffs. Video features lots of IC Light commercials and whoever originally recorded this game flips to an episode of Starsky & Hutch at halftime featuring a very perky pre-"Three's Company" Suzanne Summers in the role of a go-go dancer. Happy A huge thank you to Jay Korber for generously providing us with this game!
