1980 Steelers 17 at Falcons 14 Preseason

If only the 1980 team could've stayed healthy. SO much talent! Bradshaw capitalizes on a Banaszak fumble recovery on Atlanta's first play and hits Rocky Bleier for a short TD pass in the opening minutes, and Cliff Stoudt scores on a 1-yd QB keeper early in the 3rd as the Super Bowl champs jump out 17-0 and hold off a 4th quarter Falcons rally. Bradshaw looks sharp in his first action of the preseason, hitting 10 of 16 for 163 yds for a TD while playing only the first half. Features an absolutely ridiculous head-over-heels catch by Lynn Swann on Pittsburgh's opening TD drive and includes Howard Cosell's halftime highlights. A huge Mac & Wife thank you to Jay Korber for generously providing us with this game!
