2008 Steelers 38 vs Texans 17
An absolute massacre. Parker slices through Houston for 138 yds and 3 TDs and Big Ben is near-perfect, hitting 13 of 14 for 137 yds with 2 scoring strikes to Hines Ward (6 catches, 76 yds).
But it's the defense who truly shines in a rout that begins by stuffing the Texans on 4th-and-inches on their opening possession. James Harrison is already in Defensive MVP form, bludgeoning Matt Schuab for 3 sacks and a forced fumble and leading the team in tackles. Lamaar Woodley is fantastic in his first start, racking up 3 tackles, 2 tackles for loss, 2 QB hurries, 1 sack, 1 interception, 1 pass defensed and 1 fumble recovery.
Troy Polamalu adds an interception and 3 tackles of his own as the Steelers simply manhandle the overmatched Texans. Houston adds a pair of garbage time TDs after trailing 35-3, but this one is never in doubt.
