Episode Summary

January 2, 1980
The Divisional round is over, and the Cowboys season of disappointment continues, as they fall at home to the upset-minded L.A. Rams 21-19. Rams quarterback Vince Ferragamo was just too much for the Dallas defense to handle, and has taken his Rams team to the conference title game, where they will face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who themselves got a nice victory last Saturday, defeating the Philadelphia Eagles 24-17. This will be Tampa Bay's 1st ever conference title game, a few weeks after they made the postseason for the first time in team history. In the AFC, Houston's upset streak continues as they defeat the San Diego Chargers 17-14, despite a huge aerial assault by Dan Fouts and the Chargers passing game. Houston will take on the Pittsburgh Steelers, who won yet another convincing victory by defeating the Miami Dolphins 34-14. Len and Nick debate whether or not they should give Houston any chance of winning this game, while the two surprises of this season, Los Angeles and Tampa Bay, duke it out in what should be a defensive battle.moreless
