Super Bowl XIII MVP: Terry Bradshaw wire reports

Terry Bradshaw

Throwing a Super Bowl record four touchdown passes, quarterback Terry Bradshaw was named the Most Valuable Player of the Steelers' 35-31 win over Dallas. Setting a personal best with 318 passing yards, Bradshaw led Pittsburgh to its third Super Bowl championship in five seasons.

His first two scoring passes went to John Stallworth, for 28 and 75 yards. With only 26 seconds left in the first half, he hit Rocky Bleier with a 7-yard pass for a 21-14 Pittsbugh lead. Then, on the first play following a Pittsburgh fumble recovery in the fourth quarter, Bradshaw hit Lynn Swann with an 18-yard touchdown pass to seal the victory. With 17 completions in 30 attempts, nearly 25 percent of Bradshaw's passes went for scores.
