1964 Received Pittsburgh Steelers at Cleveland Browns. John Henry Johnson raced for 200 yards on 30 carries with touchdown runs of 33, 45 and 4 yards. This was the best game of his career and a Steeler record for a single game. Clarence Peaks carried 21 times for 96 yards. Quarterback Ed Brown completed 9 of 11 passes for 126 yards. The Steeler defense recorded no turnovers but did sack Frank Ryan four times for 21 yards. The Steelers had 422 yards of total offense. The only mistake for my team was a fumble at the Browns five, which would have turned the game into a real blowout. As it is, the Pittsburgh Steelers won 23 to 7 and were never in any trouble.
1968. The mud bowl in the tradition of Thanksgiving Day football in Detroit. I always enjoy games in the mud and this one, to me, was the best ever. Coming in with a perfect 0-11 record the Eagles shutout the 3-6-2 Lions 12 to 0. The Lions offense was nonexistent as the Eagles shut down both the pass and run. The Eagles intercepted three passes. On the defensive line, both Floyd Peters and Dave Lloyd virtually eliminated the Lions running game. Placekicker Sam Baker kicked one field goal in each quarter. Joe Scarpati showed some real skill holding the ball in a swamp. I have a real condensed version on the NFL replay with Pat Summeral and Tom Brookshier. I would like some more of this muddy film.

1964 Pittsburgh Steelers at New York Giants
John Henry Johnson gained 106 yards in 24 carries and scored touchdowns on runs of 10 and 2 yards. Clarence Peaks carried 15 times for 97 yards. Peaks also caught one pass for 43 yards. Ed Brown, playing only three quarters, went 10 for 13 for 184 yards and two TD passes. It was great seeing Brown on the sidelines, giving reserves a real chance. Pittsburgh recovered four Giant fumbles. The first was Dick Haley in the Steeler End Zone breaking the Giants back early in the game. The Steelers 44 to 17 win was the third highest score in Pittsburgh history.
