The most bizarre play EVER in all sports. Down 7-6, with 22 seconds remaining in the 1972 AFC Wild Card matchup, Terry Bradshaw threw a pass intended for John Fuqua.

Just as the ball seemed to slip to the ground, Steelers runningback Franco Harris scooped up the ball when it was less than an inch from the ground, and ran it in to the endzone to end the game.

Runningback Frenchy Fuqua collided with Raiders' cornerback Jack Tatum, the ball bounced up, and landed in the hands of hall of fame runningback Franco Harris. Touchdown. The Immaculate Reception was born. The winning ways would continue with 8 straight playoff berths and 4 Super Bowl championships- Super Bowls IX, X, XIII, and XIV belonged to Pittsburgh. The 1970s teams are considered perhaps the greatest in history with hall of famers like Bradshaw, Harris, receivers John Stallworth and Lynn Swann, defensiveback Mel Blount, linebackers Jack Lambert and Jack Ham, among others. Were up and down in the 1980s with 4 playoff berths, but turned it around when Bill Cowher became coach in 1992, ratling off 6 straight playoff berths, but unfort...more...

one of the first players in the nfl to openly talk about steroids. even though he was on steroids, he was one of the best offensive lineman in the 1970's and early 1980's he played for the pittsburgh steelers and tampa bay buccaneers.

After he admitted of taking steroids, he became a motivational speaker and talked to many athletes, adults and kids alike about the dangers of steroids. He was a great man and will always be remembered.
