Aircheck: CBS, 9/18/1977

A few old-school football highlights from “The NFL Today” for you this weekend, in honor of both Brent Musberger’s retirement and the Super Bowl tomorrow.

Back in the day  before computers, sports pagers, and ESPN, if you wanted to know what was going on in the sports world CBS didn’t air in your area, you watched the highlights at halftime. 

These clips are from the first week of the 1977 NFL season, the last to go only 14 weeks, with each team playing 14 games without the benefit of bye weeks. The Dallas Cowboys were the big winners of the season, beating Denver 27-10 to win the 12th Super Bowl.
