1979 AFC Playoffs Steelers 34 vs Dolphins 14

Seemingly unable to make a wrong move, the Steelers pour it on early, smashing Griese and Csonka and running roughshod over the vaunted Miami defense. Terry Bradshaw (21 of 31, 230 yards, 2 TDs) engineers TD drives on Pittsburgh's first 3 possessions, jumping out to an effortless 20-0 lead with TD passes to Swann and Stallworth while controlling the ball for a staggering 13 minutes of the first quarter. The Steel Curtain does it's part by limiting Miami to just 25 yards rushing in 22 attempts on the day (a pitiful 1.1 yard average per rush). While the Steelers are able to do whatever they want, whenever they want, the overmatched Dolphins never come close to being in this game as Don Shula suffers his worst playoff defeat.

That 20-0 1st quarter might have been the finest quarter the Steelers played in the 1978-1979 SB seasons at Three Rivers Stadium.

Miami was no slouch that season (I mean, who had them winning the AFC East , but they were in over their heads at Three Rivers on this day.

Hard to argue your point. They were near-perfect in all three phases of the game. It just looked so easy!

Shula was a great coach but was a cry baby. Hated the Steelers changed the passing rules in hopes of stopping them. Glad that he got his butt kicked.
