2002 Steelers 6 vs Texans 24

This HUGE upset is #3 on my list of the most embarrassing Steelers losses of my lifetime (behind only the 51-0 loss to Cleveland in 1989 and the 16-15 loss to the expansion Browns in 2000). The Steelers outgain the expansion Texans 422-47, yet lose BIG on Tommy Maddox turnovers, 3 of which are returned for TDs. The Steeler defense sets an NFL record for fewest yards allowed by a losing team, a record I suspect will NEVER be broken. And really, who would want to break it? Oh, the humanity...
