    This was the show the pros watched. This particular episode opened the 1977 NFL season with Week 1 highlights, featuring the most anticipated matchup of the year with the Baltimore Colts and the Miami Dolphins. Though the season would prove to be a bust with the Pittsburgh Steelers winning everything, including blowout games over the Baltimore Colts and the Oakland Raiders, this would be the 3rd of the 4 championships that the "Steel Curtain" would win. Each week, starting with this one, Al Nelson would pick the offensive player of the week (Terry Bradshaw) and Chuck Bednarik would pick the defensive player of the week (Jack Lambert) and they would arm-wrestle to decide teh play of the week. This would go on for another 2 years before the show really becomes popular.moreless
