Most people remember the 2001-2002 season as the season of the Tuck Rule and the emergence of Tom Brady out from behind Drew Bledsoe.
In fact, the Tuck Rule game seems to take a lot of attention away from what happened the very next week.
After leading them to a dramatic upset of the Oakland Raiders, Tom Brady once again took control of the New England offense, and the Patriots certainly seemed to ride that moment through most of the game.
The teams were deadlocked until receiver Troy Brown took a re-punt to the house in the final minutes of the first quarter, which was followed quickly by a Pittsburgh Steelers field goal. That would be the last time the Steelers scored until the third quarter.
Brady was knocked out of the game midway through the second quarter, but Drew Bledsoe kept things going smoothly, setting up another Patriots touchdown and increasing the lead to 14-3.
The second half opened with a bang as Tedy Bruschi picked up a fumbled snap, but the subsequent drive went nowhere for the Pats. Their turnover on downs on that series led to a 52 yard drive to the 16 yard line, where Kris Brown attempted his second field goal.
It was blocked.
Troy Brown recovered the ball and lateraled it to Antwan Harris after 11 yards, who returned it for a touchdown.
Needless to say, the game continued with big plays to the point where the Steelers pulled within a touchdown and threw a pick. Then they stopped the Pats who missed the 50 yard field goal to ice the game, and subsequently threw another pick.
This game had it all.
