2006 Steelers 13 at Raiders 20

Brutal. Awful. Putrid. It's hard to understand why Coach Cowher let Ben play in this game, a week after Roethlisberger was knocked out of the Falcons game with a nasty concussion.

Ben struggles from the outset, throwing 2 INTs in Pittsburgh's first 3 possessions, one of which is returned for a 24-yd TD. In the 4th quarter, Ben throws 2 more picks, including one as the Steelers are driving for a potential tying score that is returned 100-yds for a TD.

Meanwhile, Raiders QB Andrew Walter (who???) completes only 5 of 14 passes for 51 yds, 0 TDs and 1 INT (along with 6 sacks)... yet the hapless Raiders win? Watching the defending champs to fall to an absolutely horrid, eventual 2-14 team like Oakland marked the low point of the season for me(and I think for the Steelers as well).
