1979 Steelers 30 at Chiefs 3

Total domination! The Steel Curtain is definitely on their game, absolutely crushing the Chief's offense & giving QB Steve Fuller a brutal pounding. Meanwhile, Pittsburgh's offense is nearly unstoppable, racking up a 20-0 halftime lead on the strength of TD passes to Swann (who makes an absolutely unbelievable "how'd he get both feet down" TD catch in the back of the end zone) & Stallworth (on a razzle-dazzle flea-flicker). Includes an interesting Spalding shoe commercial featuring Terry running through the woods with a dog and a full head of hair plus a pregame interview on a Pittsburgh talk show with John Stallworth.

This was total domination. And KC was semi-decent. 7-9, but trapped in an insanely competitive AFC West. And they had some decent wins: 4-0 against the Raiders/Seahawks (one of those wins came a week after this game, and the week before this they gave the Chargers a good tough game in a close loss at Arrowhead.

Yes, the Chiefs played pretty solid ball under Marv Levy. This game was a bad showing for KC, obviously, but firing Levy after the strike season was one of the biggest blunders in Chiefs history IMO.
