2005 Steelers 27 at Texans 7

An absolute annihilation. The Steelers defense abuses David Carr, sacking him 8 times, including 3 by safety Troy Polamalu who seems to be coming from everywhere. While Carr spends most of the afternoon looking out his ear hole and is clearly confused throughout the game (wasting 3 timeouts, getting called for intentional grounding and taking 2 delay-of-game penalties), Ben Roethlisberger has a near-perfect first half, completing 11 of 15 for 201 yds and 2 TDs to build a 20-0 lead.

Clark Haggans makes a huge play early when he chases down David Carr and forces a fumble that Joey Porter recovers at the Texans� 22, leading to Pittburgh's first TD. Willie Parker carries 25 times for 111 yds and a TD and Hines Ward grabs 6 passes for 84 yds and 2 TDs as the Steelers score on each of their first 4 possessions.

For the 2nd consecutive game, Pittsburgh has no use for punter Chris Gardocki until the 4th quarter.
