2004 Steelers 27 vs Eagles 3

The Steelers continue on their reign of terror against the NFL's elite, blowing out the previously unbeaten Eagles in remarkably easy fashion. Roethlisberger guides the Steelers to a seemingly effortless 21-0 lead, scoring on their first 3 possessions behind the hard running of Bettis, who gains 149 yards in his 55th career 100-yard game. Hines Ward scores on the first two drives, a 16-yard reverse and a 20-yard reception, then mocks Eagles receiver Terrell Owens by flapping his arms Owens-like in the end zone both times. Meanwhile, Owens finishes with a season-low 53 yards receiving. A week after outrushing New England 221-5, the Steelers outrun the Eagles 252-23 and outgain them 420-111. With the victory, Pittsburgh becomes the first team in NFL history to stop unbeaten teams in consecutive weeks after each had won at least six games.

The Bus picked up his 3rd (of 4 total) offensive player of the week awards for his efforts in this game. 33 bruising carries (one more than his age at the time) for a buck forty-nine.
