2001 Steelers 47 vs Lions 14

This one gets ugly early as Lions rookie QB Mike McMahon loses 2 fumbles and throws an INT in the first 18 minutes of the game, leading to 2 TDs and a 27-7 Pittsburgh lead. Joey Porter nails McMahon from behind for the first of Pittsburgh's six sacks on just the 3rd play of the game, forcing a fumble which Jason Gildon scoops up and returns 27 yds for an easy TD. Chris Fuamatu-Ma'afala has his finest day as a pro (26 carries, 126 yds) while Kordell Stewart throws for 3 TDs and rushes for another. Missing kickoff.
