NO CATCH II: There was no instant replay in the NFL in 1979. Had there been, the Pittsburgh Steelers dynasty might not have looked so nice and tidy with a pair of back-to-back titles.
The Houston Oilers were down by a touchdown in the third quarter of the AFC Championship game when Dan Pastorini found Mike Renfro in the corner of the end zone. The wide receiver clearly made the catch and slapped two feet on the ground before rolling out of bounds. Clearly, anyway, to everyone but the official on the spot. With no challenge flag to throw, Houston coach Bum Phillips settled for a field goal. Instead of tying the game,China Cheap Jerseys, the Oilers trailed 17-13 and lost 27-13.
