2002 Steelers 34 at Bengals 7

The Steelers are nearly flawless as they pound the winless Bengals in embarrassingly easy fashion. Maddox hits Burress on a 31-yd pass to open the game and then uses the Bus like a battering ram on 5 straight plays, capped by a 1-yard burst into the end zone for a 7-0 lead. A Lee Flowers INT leads to a Pittsburgh FG, and a 2nd Flowers just 4 plays later leads to one of the longest runs of Bettis' career, a 41-yd burst off left tackle featuring absolutely PERFECT blocks by teammates Kreider, Faneca and Burress, a remarkable move by the Bettis to fake the safety out of his jock, followed by a perfect finishing block by Ward as Bettis finally rumbles into the end zone, dragging a pair of Bengals along for the ride. Bengals QB Jon Kitna, who suffers 5 sacks and 3 INTs, is hit from behind by Joey Porter on a strip/sack and the ball pops right into the hands of big boy Casey Hampton, who chugs 36 yds to the Cinci 7 to set up another Steelers TD and a 24-0 halftime lead. Adding insult to injury, Antwaan Randle El returns the 2nd half kickoff 99-yds for an electrifying TD, the first of his career. Game features halftime highlights as well as multiple postgame highlights and interviews.

Most excellent. What a beatdown. Thank you Sir! Were you able to pull that '99 game vs Carolina from those links I emailed you? Or did you in fact already have that game? Let me know for future reference! Thx again
