Ben Roethlisberger threw his fifth touchdown pass of the day in the waning minutes of the Steelers’ matchup versus the Tennessee Titans. The Steelers were already ahead by two touchdowns, but they kept throwing, and Mike Wallace streaked toward the end zone, badly beating the Titans’ secondary and easily catching a perfectly-thrown ball.
With two minutes left, the Titans are turning to the run, so it appears this one is over. The Steelers will be 3-2, and their offense finally looks like it’s firing on all cylinders, despite continued problems with the health (and talent level) of the offensive line. It has been a great day for Roethlisberger, who threw his five touchdowns despite a sprained foot. It was also a career day for Jonathan Dwyer, who has 117 yards so far, thanks mostly to one huge run. The Steelers also have gotten great play from Mike Wallace (who had 82 yards receiving) and Ike Taylor (who shut down the receivers he covered, as usual).
UPDATE: It’s final. The Steelers win, 38-17.
