Wallace is Digest Player of Week

MIKE WALLACE
Wide Receiver

It was the fifth straight regular season game in which Mike Wallace had over 100 yards receiving, and this was no blowout loss where a team's passing statistics get padded at the end. Wallace caught eight passes for 126 yards, plus the 2-yard touchdown that accounted for the final points in the Steelers' 24-0 victory over the Seahawks at Heinz Field. It was Wallace's ninth career 100-yard receiving game.

Wallace is the Steelers Digest Player of the Week.
