Mike Wallace Touchdown: Steelers Star Scores 95-Yard TD Against Cardinals (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Whether it's Tom Brady connecting with Wes Welker for a 99-yard touchdown pass in Week 1 or Aaron Rodgers hitting Jordy Nelson last week for a 93-yard score, there sure seem to be an abundance of long passing plays this season. Even Curtis Painter completed an 87-yard touchdown pass to Pierre Garcon against Tampa Bay.

The trend continued in Week 7.

Playing against the Arizona Cardinals, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw the longest touchdown in Steelers history with a 95-yarder to star receiver Mike Wallace.

Midway through the second quarter, with Pittsburgh backed up to its own 5-yard line, Big Ben dropped back a yard into his own end zone before launching a deep pass to Wallace on the right sideline. Pittsburgh's speedster caught the ball in stride near the 40-yard line and dashed up the sideline. The Arizona defenders never had a chance. It was one of three Roethlisberger touchdowns as Pittsburgh went on to win 32-20.
