Pittsburgh - Ben Roethlisberger passed for 320 yards and a touchdown and the Pittsburgh Steelers rolled to a 27-3 victory over the Carolina Panthers in a game between two teams on opposite ends of the NFL spectrum.

Roethlisberger also rushed for a score and was 22-of-32 passing, including a 43-yard touchdown pass to Mike Wallace in the second quarter.

Already in the playoffs, the Steelers (11-4) took a 1/2-game lead over Baltimore in the AFC North with the Ravens set to play Cleveland on Sunday.

The Panthers (2-13) got their only points from John Kasay's 27-yard field goal in the fourth quarter and continue to have the NFL's worst record.
