Steelers Rout Raiders, 35-3

PITTSBURGH (AP) — James Harrison caused two turnovers that Ben Roethlisberger turned into touchdown passes and the Pittsburgh Steelers went on to rout the Oakland Raiders 35-3 on Sunday.

Harrison led a defense that drove Raiders quarterback Jason Campbell from the game, and finished with five tackles, two sacks, an interception and a forced fumble. The former AP NFL Defensive Player of the Year also was called for a penalty for slamming Campbell to the turf as the quarterback was throwing a pass.

Roethlisberger finished with three TD passes and also ran for another. He threw scoring passes of 52 yards to Mike Wallace, 22 yards to rookie Emmanuel Sanders and 16 yards to Isaac Redman. He also scrambled 16 yards for a touchdown as the Steelers (7-3) bounced back after being rolled over by New England 39-26 at Heinz Field last week.
