Pittsburgh has been hit with a rash of
early season injuries to key players, in-
cluding quarterback Terry Bradshaw,
running back Franco Harris,
linebacker Jack Lambert and defensive
tackle Joe Greene, all of whom have
missed action thus far this year.
Still, the Steelers have only been
beaten once. Why? Browns Coach Sam
Rutigliano offers this answer: "Without
question, the Steelers have the best
depth in the NFL: And they have Terry
Bradshaw at quarterback. Bradshaw
has virtually carried the Steelers him-
self. Without question he is the best
quarterback in the NFL."
This week Bradshaw will go to

Thornton combine to give Pittsburgh
one of the biggest backfields in the NFL
when they choose to run. Cleveland's
tough defense will be tested, although
the return of Lyle Alzado at defensive
end should help.
Without Greg Pruitt, Cleveland will
be at a big disadvantage. Mike Pruitt
and Cleo Miller will try to pick up the
slack in the running game. Quarter-
back Brian Sipe is off to a good start
this year, and look for him to throw to

NEW YORK-Affirmed led most of
the way as he repelled Spectacular Bid
in the stretch and won their showdown
yesterday in the $375,000 Jockey Club
Gold Cup at Belmont Park.
THE VICTORY should establish Af-
firmed as Horse of the Year for the
second straight time.
Affirmed, ridden by Laffit Pincay,
took the lead on the clubhouse turn,
surrendered it briefly and then was
back in front entering the backstretch.
The 4-year-old Triple Crown winner of
1978 stayed there.
Both Affirmed and Spectacular Bid
became the first race horses ever to win
$1 million in a year. Affirmed now has
won $1,148,000 this year, while the
second money fo $82,500 boosted Spec-
tacular Bid's 1979 bankroll to $1,045,683.
