Terry Bradshaw (XIII)

17-30, 318 yds, 10.6 YPA, 4 TD, 1 INT, 119.2 pr

Bradshaw was low-wattage regular-season performer who routinely lit up the Super Bowl as if it were Times Square. His greatest performance (despite three turnovers) could not have come at a better time or in a bigger battle. In the signature game of the 1970s, and in a battle to determine who would go down as the team of the decade, Bradshaw lobbed one deadly bomb after another, including a 75-yard scoring strike to John Stallworth that erased Dallas's only lead and put Pittsburgh in the driver's seat of destiny. His 318 yards and four TD tosses in the 35-31 win were Super Bowl records at the time.
