This game started it all. Five more titles would come after the Steelers' 16-6 win over the Minnesota Vikings in Super Bowl IX.
The deposed Terry Bradshaw would storm back after a preseason benching to throw a touchdown pass in this game. Franco Harris's 158 yards would set a Super Bowl record and earn him the MVP of the game.
The Steelers will commemorate that Sunday in their Week 13 game against the New Orleans Saints by wearing a patch on their jerseys for the 40th anniversary of the game. The game was played in New Orleans, at Tulane Stadium, once the home of the Saints.
Here are some highlights from Super Bowl IX.
