MIKE WALLACE
Wide Receiver

It was the fifth straight regular season game in which Mike Wallacehttp://www.steelers.com/assets/nflimg/icon-article-link.gif (http://www.steelers.com/team/roster/mike-wallace/304eecdf-1b60-4dc4-9cd8-7808d9f5c97a/) had over 100 yards receiving, and this was no blowout loss where a team’s passing statistics get padded at the end. Wallace caught eight passes for 126 yards, plus the 2-yard touchdown that accounted for the final points in the Steelers’ 24-0 victory over the Seahawks at Heinz Field. It was Wallace’s ninth career 100-yard receiving game.

Wallace is the Steelers Digest Player of the Week.
