It was Fast Willie time. On his first of two long runs, Parker ran 72 yards to the Saints' 14, and scored from the 3 to give the Steelers a 31-24 lead. He did it again on the next series when he bounced an inside call around right end and took it 76 yards to the 4, where he was caught from behind by Jason Craft.
After a timeout, Parker scooted around left end for a 4-yard touchdown that put the Steelers ahead by two touchdowns. It was a big day for Parker.
