    Bums No More: Steelers over Packers 19-7, Win Super Bowl VII

    Terry Bradshaw was named MVP of Super Bowl VII…

    The Pittsburgh Steelers became the first Wild Card team to win a Super Bowl (the 1980 Oakland Raiders were the first team to do so in real life) with a 19-7 verdict over Green Bay, with four Roy Gerela field goals proving to be the difference in the game’s outcome.

    Terry Bradshaw won the MVP trophy for some key runs, not for his 8 for 20 passing effort, good for 141 yards.  He run 6 times for 44 yards on top of that.  The Steelers failed to make a turnover the entire game, scoring each of the three times they were inside the Green Bay 20, once for a touchdown, twice on Gerela field goals.

    Green Bay’s lone score was a 68 yard punt return by Ken Ellis, who ran two punts back for TD’s in the Packers 17-16 win over Washington in the divisional playoffs.  Pittsburgh finished 12-5 on the year and takes home the Lombardi Trophy, while Green Bay finished 13-4.

    Immaculate Elimination: Pittsburgh Over Miami, 14-12 

    Franco Harris broke the hearts of all the Dolphin fans in the southeast United States as a three yard run with 1:40 left gave the Steelers a 14-12 lead that held up for the win.  The Dolphins couldn’t find the end zone all day and had to settle for four Garo Yepremian field goals for their scoring.

    Pittsburgh moves on to face the Cincinnati-Oakland winner on the road for the AFC Championship.  The Dolphins, unlike their real life 1972 counterparts, finished 11-3-1 overall.

    Giant Upset: Giants over Dolphins, 23-20 

    On a cold Sunday at Yankee Stadium, a field goal by Pete Gogolak gave the Giants a 23-20 lead with 1:36 left in the game, with a quick Miami turnover sealing their fate shortly afterward.  Mercury Morris ran for 146 yards on 14 carries in a losing effort for the Dolphins, who fall to 11-2 on the season, while the Giants improved to 5-8.

    The Dolphins can still clinch the top seed in the AFC if they beat Baltimore at the Orange Bowl next week…
