Steelers Vs. Bengals Score Update: Mike Wallace's Second Touchdown Puts Pittsburgh Up 35-7

In a fast moving third quarter, the Pittsburgh Steelers managed to extend their lead to 28 points over the Cincinnati Bengals. Mike Wallace scored the Steelers fifth touchdown of the day, as Ben Roethlisberger hit him for the 19 yard score. Wallace did all the work, however, as nearly all of those 19 yards came after the catch. He weaved his way through traffic and broke tackle after tackle to break the plane before being knocked down.

Wallace has only three catches for 38 yards, but two of those are for touchdowns as the wideout has gladly gotten in on a beating the Steelers are giving their division rival. Pittsburgh heads to the fourth quarter just looking to avoid any serious injuries at this point, as their defense has bottled up Andy Dalton and the Bengals all day.
