2003 Steelers 28 vs Cardinals 15

Jason Gildon moves ahead of LC Greenwood to become Pittsburgh's all-time sack leader as the Steelers end a 5-game losing streak with an explosive 3rd quarter. The Steelers enter the 2nd half with a slim 7-3 lead, but a Gildon sack of Jeff Blake on pins AZ at the Steeler 3. A terrible punt by Scott Player travels only 24 yds and the Steelers take advantage of the great field position as Maddox hits Ward for a 5-yd TD 3 plays later. Following the ensuing kickoff, DeShea Townsend -- who has 7 tackles and breaks up 2 passes -- nails Blake for a sack on a corner blitz, forcing a fumble that Kimo von Oelhoffen recovers at the Cardinal 22. The Steelers need only one play to score their 2nd TD in 65 seconds, a 22-yd Maddox-to-Ward to make it 21-3. Lightning strikes again a few minutes later when Randle El following great special teams blocking and returns a punt 52 yds for TD to ostensibly put the game away at 28-3.
