Wallace is Digest Player of Week


Sometimes he found himself on Revis Island and sometimes he didn't, but Mike Wallace didn't let All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis intimidate him.

Wallace finished with seven catches for a team-high 102 yards, and his play helped the Steelers convert 11-of-17 (65 percent) on third downs. Wallace's 18-yard catch converted a third-and-10 on the final possession and brought the ball to the Jets 26-yard line. Wallace now has 53 catches for 1,048 yards, which is good for a 19.8 average, and it clinched the first 1,000-yard receiving season for him in just his second year in the league.
