2001 Steelers 20 vs Lions 7 Preseason

The first-ever game at Heinz Field! Pittsburgh opens their brand-spanking-new stadium by shutting out Detroit until the final seconds of the game behind strong performances from Kordell Stewart and Tommy Maddox. Stewart hits 12 of 15 for 135 yds and leads a beautiful 96-yd TD drive before coming out of the game late in the second quarter. Newcomer Tommy Maddox goes 11 of 17 for 144 yds, punctuated by a 33-yd TD to Demetrius Brown. Conversely, Detroit QBs Charlie Batch and Mike McMahon struggle for a combined 13 of 33 for 174 yds as the Steelers outgain Detroit by nearly 200 yds.
