1983 Steelers 3 at Lions 45 Thanksgiving

The infamous Thanksgiving Day Massacre. Billy Sims runs for 106 yds and 2 TDs, Eric Hipple throws 2 TD passes, Robbie Martin returns a punt for an 81-yd TD as the Lions hand the Steelers their worst defeat since 1947. Cliff Stoudt is horrific, throwing 4 INTs (including 2 on his first 2 pass attempts), suffering 2 sacks and completing only 9 of 25 passes for 83 yds before being yanked with more than 10 minutes to play. Mark Malone throws a pick of his own that is returned 70 yds to the Steeler 4 to set up another Detroit TD. In spite of his generosity, I refuse to thank Jay Korber for providing us with footage of this debacle.  Sick Laugh  LOL.

Cliff Stoudt was all smiles during warmups. Even Chuck Noll broke a little bit of a rare smile on the sideline before the game. They both had no idea what was about to happen to them.

This was the most embarrassing loss I'd ever experienced... until week 1 of 1989.  Pi_blackeye Pi_shocked Embarassed

This copy of the game is missing the second half kickoff and the first few plays of the Steelers' opening possession of the third quarter.
