The 1978 Steelers won their third Super Bowl of the decade with a 14-2 record in which they allowed a league-low 12.2 points per game. In the playoffs, the Chuck Noll-coached team blew out the defending AFC Champion Broncos, 33-10 and the Oilers, 34-5 before winning a 35-31 Super Bowl shootout over Tom Landry’s defending-champion Cowboys. The Steelers' two losses were by a combined 10 points. Its defense averaged three takeaways per game, starring future Hall of Famers Jack Lambert and Jack Ham at linebacker; Mel Blount at cornerback; and Mean Joe Greene at defensive tackle. Safety Donnie Shell and defensive end L.C. Greenwood had Pro Bowl seasons. The Steelers offense boasted Hall of Famers at quarterback (Terry Bradshaw) fullback (Franco Harris) and wide receiver (Lynn Swann and John Stallworth). All four of those players were clutch in the Super Bowl as Bradshaw threw for 318 yards and 4 TDs, Harris scored a touchdown, and Swann and Stallworth combined for 239 yards receiving and 3 TDs.
