Immaculate Reception Proven

There has been much concern about this particular play for over a generation.  We finally have definite proof that the catch was legal and that the Steelers won the game.   These four photos show the play in detail and are taken from NFL Films.

As a very loyal fan of the Steelers for over 60 years this is one of my favorite plays.

1. Bradshaw fades to pass eluding rush

2. He gets the ball away

3. The ball clearly contacts Raider's Tatum while both he and Fuqua go for it.

4. Franco catches deflection at shoetop and races for winning TD.
