2006 Steelers 20 vs Bucs 3

The Bucs kick a FG on the final play of the game to avoid a shutout as the Steelers capitalize on repeated mistakes by rookie QB Bruce Gradkowski, who throws 3 INTs, is nailed for 5 sacks (2 by Joey Porter) and is victimized by multiple drops. Pittsburgh's offense isn't great, gaining only 267 total yds. But after an early INT, Roethlisberger bounces back to throw 2 TDs (Heath Miller and Jerame Tuman) and looks like his old self, throwing on the run and making plays outside the pocket while being sacked only once. Willie Parker manages only 61 yds on 22 carries as the running game continues to struggle, but Cadillac Williams fairs even worse with 27 yds on 11 carries in a matchup of the league's two most disappointing teams.
