2005 Steelers 41 at Browns 0

The Steelers dominate from the moment they take the field, giving Cleveland a big, fat goose egg for Christmas as they shut out the Browns in embarrassingly easy fashion. The win marks the 11th time in the past 12 games the Steelers have defeated the Browns and moves them one step closer to a playoff berth.

Hapless rookie QB Charlie Frye is sacked 8 times (3 by Porter) and fumbles 4 times as Pittsburgh outgains Cleveland 457-178 in one of the most lopsided games in the 55-year-old rivalry. Meanwhile, Roethlisberger calmly picks the Browns apart, completing 13 of 20 passes for 226 yds and a TD, Willie Parker burns Cleveland with a stunning 80-yds breakaway TD run and Ward catches 7 passes for 105 yds and a TD.

Adding insult to injury, James Harrison blocks a punt and famously body-slams a drunken Browns fan who runs onto the field.
