1983 Steelers 3 at Lions 45 Thanksgiving

The infamous Thanksgiving Day Massacre. Billy Sims runs for 106 yds and 2 TDs, Eric Hipple throws 2 TD passes, Robbie Martin returns a punt for an 81-yd TD as the Lions hand the Steelers their worst defeat since 1947. Cliff Stoudt is horrific, throwing 4 INTs (including 2 on his first 2 pass attempts), suffering 2 sacks and completing only 9 of 25 passes for 83 yds before being yanked with more than 10 minutes to play. Mark Malone throws a pick of his own that is returned 70 yds to the Steeler 4 to set up another Detroit TD.
