1984 Steelers 35 vs Oilers 7

John Stallworth appears ageless, catching 3 TD passes (tying Lynn Swann's team record of 51 career TD catches) from Mark Malone despite a driving rain to key a 35-7 rout the winless Oilers. Pittsburgh takes command early when Bryan Hinkle recovers a fumble on Houston's 2nd offensive play. Malone immediately hits a wide open Stallworth on a 43-yd bomb. Malone extends the lead to 21-0 by halftime with a 13-yd TD run on a bootleg and a 17-yd scoring toss to Stallworth. The 3rd quarter fairs no better for Houston as a scrambling Malone again throws deep to Stallworth, who makes a leaping catch in traffic and glides into the end zone for a 39-yd TD to extend the Pittsburgh lead to 28-0. Twenty seconds later, Hinkle scoops up his 2nd fumble recovery of the day and dances down the sideline for a 21-yd TD to make it 35-0. Footage includes over 25 minutes of pregame material.
