SUPER BOWL 14
Jan. 20, 1980
At Pasadena, Calif.-103,985
Los Angeles 7..6..6..0-19
The Steel Curtain dynasty concluded as Terry Bradshaw completed 14 of 21 passes for 309 yards and set two passing records as the Steelers became the first team to win four Super Bowls.
Despite three interceptions by the Rams, Bradshaw brought the Steelers from behind twice in the second half. Trailing 13-10 at halftime, Pittsburgh went ahead 17-13 when Bradshaw connected with Lynn Swann for a 47-yard touchdown early in the third quarter.
On the Rams' next possession, Vince Ferragamo responded with a 50-yard pass to Billy Waddy that moved Los Angeles to the Steelers 24. On the following play, Lawrence McCutcheon connected with Ron Smith on a halfback option pass that gave the Rams a 19-17 lead.
On Pittsburgh's initial possession of the fourth quarter, Bradshaw lofted a gorgeous 73-yard scoring pass to John Stallworth to put the Steelers in front to stay, 24-19. A 45-yard pass from Bradshaw to Stallworth was the key play in Pittsburgh's final scoring drive, which was culminated by Franco Harris' second 1-yard TD of the game.
Bradshaw, the game's MVP for the second straight year, set Super Bowl records for most touchdown passes (nine) and most passing yards (932).
The Steelers would not win another Super Bowl for a quarter-century.
