It was the fifth straight regular season game in which Mike Wallace
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.
