1982 Steelers 24 at Patriots 20 Preseason

Played at Neyland Stadium in Knoxville, Tennessee, this preseason opener between the Steelers and Patriots surprisingly generates one of the largest crowds in NFL history (93,249). The crowd is so large that it actually represents the largest the Patriots had ever played before at that time. A huge thank you to Jay Korber for generously providing us with this game!

Yes, the 1982 World's Fair was going on in Knoxville at this time.

At halftime, Patriots color man Bob Lobel interviews Dan Rooney, plus an in-depth feature on Patriots 1982 number-one pick Kenneth Sims.
