Another week, another jaw-dropping play from Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace. The third-year Ole Miss product extended the Steelers lead over the Cardinals on Sunday when he burned Patrick Peterson, Arizona's first round draft pick this year, deep and then outraced both he and the Cardinals safety chasing in pursuit for a 95-yard score that extended Pittsburgh's lead to 14-0 in the second quarter. The play was the longest passing play in Steelers franchise history thanks to Wallace's legendary speed after the catch. The play was truly a sight to behold. Just when you think he's out of his ways to pull off the incredible...

Let's see where Wallace's numbers stand through seven weeks, followed by how he's stacking up in receiving yards and yards per reception among his peers.
