Recap

Ben Roethlisberger passed for three touchdowns and ran for another, leading the Pittsburgh Steelers to a 35-3 home victory against the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.

Oakland (5-5) took a 3-0 lead on Sebastian Janikowski's 41-yard field goal, but the Steelers scored 35 unanswered points after that.

Roethlisberger completed 18 of 29 passes for 275 yards, throwing second-half touchdown passes to Emmanuel Sanders, Mike Wallace and Isaac Redman. He added 55 rushing yards on three carries, scoring on a 16-yard run in the second quarter.

Roethlisberger did end up taking a punch in this one, courtesy of defensive end Richard Seymour after the quarterback's 22-yard touchdown pass to Sanders. Seymour was promptly ejected following the action.

Wallace had three catches for 116 yards, including a 52-yard touchdown.

The Steelers (7-3) dominated on defense, holding the Raiders' powerful running game to 61 yards on 16 attempts.

After going 7-for-19 with 70 yards and an interception, Raiders quarterback Jason Campbell was replaced by Bruce Gradkowski, who completed 13 of 24 passes for 98 yards and threw an interception.
