Pittsburgh, PA (Sports Network) – Ben Roethlisberger threw for 275 yards and three touchdowns, and the Pittsburgh defense stymied Oakland all day in a 35-3 rout at Heinz Field. The Steelers (7-3) were coming off their worst home loss in nearly a half- decade, having lost to New England, 39-26. After giving up 453 yards to the Patriots last week, Pittsburgh allowed the Raiders just 182 total yards of offense on Sunday.
Roethlisberger completed 18-of-29 passes and also ran for a score to help Pittsburgh keep pace with Baltimore atop the AFC North standings after the Ravens beat the Panthers. Mike Wallace caught three passes for 116 yards and a score, while Emmanuel Sanders also caught a touchdown pass. Rashard Mendenhall ran for 59 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries.
Oakland’s Jason Campbell struggled to find a rhythm, completing only 7-of-19 passes for 70 yards with an interception before being replaced in the third quarter. Bruce Gradkowski finished the game with 98 yards passing and an interception for the Raiders (5-5), who fell a game behind the Chiefs in the AFC West after Kansas City beat the Cardinals.
