1993 Steelers 37 vs Saints 14

If you want a taste of why Rod Woodson is in the Hall of Fame, you owe it to yourself to at least watch the first quarter of this game.

As a huge Rod Woodson fan, this is one of my favorite games of the '90s. Woodson completely dominates the previously unbeaten Saints from the outset, putting on one of the finest performances by a defensive back you will ever see and demonstrating why he was the NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 1993.

The first quarter is literally a Woodson highlight reel as Rod intercepts 2 passes (the first of which he returns 63 yards for a TD and the second immediately resulting in a Barry Foster TD) and bats away numerous other passes, not to mention several excellent punt returns.

Wade Wilson finishes 6 of 23 for 85 yds, 0 TDs and 3 INTs and is sacked 5 times while Saints running backs can muster only 22 rushing yards against a fired-up Blitzburgh defense. Meanwhile, Foster and Leroy Thompson pile up over 200 yards rushing for the Steelers.
