Super Bowl XIII Steelers 35 vs Cowboys 31 - w/Gowdy & Brodie
NFL titans clash in the greatest Super Bowl match-up of all time in terms of Hall of Fame pedigree. Bradshaw, Swann & Stallworth air it out against Staubach, Dorsett & "America's Team" in a circus of big plays featuring 16 future Hall of Fame players (10 for Pittsburgh and 6 for Dallas) and two future Hall of Fame head coaches.
League and game MVP Terry Bradshaw is brilliant from the outset, particularly on 3rd down, where he hits 8 of 9 passes for 165 yards & 2 TDs. By halftime, Bradshaw has already thrown for over 250 yds and scored 3 TDs, breaking every significant Super Bowl passing record after only 30 minutes, ultimately finishing with 318 yards and 4 TDs. It's worth noting that Bradshaw really gets the hot hand after the Henderson/Hegman sack/strip for a Dallas TD. Terry is hurt on the play and administered smelling salts on the sideline. So what does he do during the next few minutes of play? He cooly throws a 3rd down 75-yard TD strike to Stallworth, hooks up with Swann three times for 76 yards and engineers a masterful 2-minute drill, capped by a beautiful touch pass to Bleier for the go-ahead TD heading into halftime.
Speaking of Swann & Stallworth, their final stats speak for themselves; Swann 7 rec. for 124 yds & a TD (the game-winner), and Stallworth 3 rec. for 115 yds & 2 TDs (in spite of playing only the 1st half due to leg cramps). And while the final game statistics suggest a shootout, Pittsburgh is clearly the dominant team. Dorsett gains 45 yards on Dallas ill-fated opening drive yet only has 47 yards by halftime. Contrary to the claims of many Dallas fans, the Jackie Smith drop occurs during the 3rd quarter, not in the waning moments of the game. Credit the Cowboys for continuing to fight, but much of Dallas' total yardage comes in "garbage time" after Pittsburgh has opened up an inusrmountable 18 point 4th quarter lead.
Before the game, the video features commentary from Dick Enberg, Curt Gowdy, John Brodie and Merlin Olsen plus player introductions and the coin toss from George Halas and the singing of National Anthem. After the game, there's plenty of postgame analysis and interviews with Bradshaw, Franco, Banaszak, Staubach, Landry and closes with Swann & Stallworth popping the cork on a huge bottle of champagne. My personal favorite game and one of the most entertaining Super Bowls of all time.
Note: There are two different versions of this game, both have outstanding video quality. This version is the complete NBC broadcast (including full halftime show) with Curt Gowdy and John Brodie calling the game. The other version is the complete NBC broadcast of the game with the radio call from Jack Fleming and Myron Cope dubbed in (no halftime show).
