2006 Steelers 45 vs Chiefs 7

The Polamalu "hair tackle" game. For the first time all season, Ben looks like Ben. Roethlisberger is precise and polished, hitting 16 of 19 for 238 yds and 2 TDs. The game is joined in progress due to the previous game running late. With the Steelers already leading 7-0, Ben quickly finds Nate Washington WIDE open on a play-action bomb for a 47-yd TD and a 14-0 first quarter lead. The Steelers just pour it on from there, out-gaining the Chiefs 372-47 in the first half alone en route to a 31-0 halftime lead. Willie Parker also shines with 109 yds and 2 TDs on 21 carries. A memorable moment from this game is Troy Polamalu being dragged down from behind by his hair by the Chiefs' Larry Johnson after intercepting a tipped pass in the 3rd quarter. The play draws an unsportsmanlike conduct flag, not for tackling by the hair, but because Johnson appears to hold on and twist Polamalu's hair as he bounces back up.
