2005 Steelers 17 vs Jaguars 23 OT

Oh, Tommy... Tommy, Tommy, Tommy. Thank you for 2002, sweet man, but it's time to go back to selling insurance.

Maddox, booed for much of the game by the home crowd, is intercepted twice on Pittsburgh's first 3 possessions -- with the second INT being returned to the Steeler 7 to set up an easy Jaguar TD -- and then turns the ball over on each of Pittsburgh's two overtime possessions -- first with a Keystone Cops-style fumble (while in FG range, no less) and then with a devastating 41-yd pick-six by Rasheen Mathis to end the game.

In his defense, Maddox was playing with an injured calf while subbing for Big Ben (hyperextended knee) and was also missing the services of Hines Ward (hamstring). But the rest of the team stepped up BIG time with Randle el providing an electrifying 72-yd punt return for a TD (keyed by crushing block by Jerame Tuman), Bryant McFadden intercepting a Leftwich pass in the end zone with 19 seconds left to force overtime, and Quincy Morgan returning the overtime opening kickoff to the Jaguar 26-yd line.
