1979 Steelers 15 at Bills 7 Preseason

Rookie Matt Bahr makes a sensational pro kicking debut, booting three field goals to lift the Steelers to a 15-7 victory in their preseason opener. Bahr connects on all three of his FG attempts - one in each of the last three periods - from 41, 39 and 25 yds to rally the Steelers from a 7-0 deficit. With 22 seconds remaining, a stunting John Banaszak pours in and DESTROYS Buffalo QB David Mays for his 3rd sack of the night, forcing a fumble that D-lineman Gary Dunn scoops up and rumbles 32 yds for the Steelers' only TD of the game. Unfortunately, Bahr misses the PAT, but his 3 clutch FGs play a large role in his bid to beat out Roy Gerela. A huge shout out to Jay Korber for generously providing us with this game!

At halftime, Andy Russell interviews Dan Rooney on a wide range of subjects, including Lynn Swann's absence from training camp and the state of the trade which had sent Frank Lewis to the Bills the year before.
