2001 Steelers 34 vs Titans 7 MNF

Pittsburgh feasts on turnovers and trickery and the offense finally breaks loose as the Steelers use a kicker (Kris Brown) to run for a first down, a wide receiver (Hines Ward) to throw passes and to run 36 yds for a first down, and Kordell Stewart actually completes multiple passes to a tight end (yes, a tight end!). Best of all, Plaxico Burress finally has a breakout game, catching 6 balls for 151 yds including a pair of deep, acrobatic catches that set up 2 Steeler TDs. Bettis scores 2 TDs and Stewart is solid, hitting 13 of 22 for 232 yds, a 3-yd TD pass (Ward), no INTs and a 2-yd rushing TD. Meanwhile, the defense recovers two fumbles, picks off two passes and sacks Steve McNair 3 times while throttling Eddie George, who manages just 13 yds on 10 carries. This game marks the last time the Steelers and Oilers/Titans meet as division rivals due to realignment and the win gives the Steelers sole possession of 1st place in the AFC Central. A special thanks to Keith "Crash" Froehlich for digitizing this game! 
An absolute drubbing!
