2005 Steelers 34 vs Titans 7

Willie Parker has a dazzling first career start with 161 yards rushing and a long 48-yd catch-and-run while Ben Roethlisberger (9 of 11, 218 yds, 2 TD, 0 Int) throws for two scores and posts a perfect QB rating of 158.3 on opening day. Pittsurgh scores on their first 6 possessions -- 4 TDs and 2 FGs -- to win their 15th regular season game in a row. After Tennessee scores on its opening drive, Roethlisberger promptly goes 5 for 5 for 88 yards on the Steelers' first drive, capped by a 3-yard touchdown pass to rookie Heath Miller. The Titans then lose a fumble (forced by Farrior), miss a field goal and are intercepted (Polamalu) on their next three possessions. The Steelers score after all three on Roethlisberger's 63-yd bomb to Antwaan Randle El and 2 Jeff Reed FG's for a 20-7 halftime lead. Pittsburgh opens the 2nd half with an effortless 74-yd TD drive capped Parker's 11-yd run and the rout is on.
