Another week, another highlight reel catch for Mike Wallace, the continually improving wide receiving threat for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Wallace's big play of Week 5 didn't come until the later part of the fourth quarter, with the Steelers comfortably ahead of the Titans but still in search of a knockout blow to punctuate what had easily been their best team effort of the 2011 season.

After breaking off his routes all afternoon, Wallace finally turned on the burners and easily ran past the Titans secondary. Ben Roethlisberger delivered a perfectly thrown ball to the goal line and Wallace used his mesmerizing speed to track it down just inside the end zone for the 40-yard score.  Big Ben and Wallace have now connected on a pass play of 40 yards or more in four consecutive games. Keep it up gentlemen!
