PITTSBURGH, Oct. 9 (UPI) -- Ben Roethlisberger posted the second five-touchdown game of his career Sunday, sparking the Pittsburgh Steelers to a 38-17 drubbing of Tennessee.

Roethlisberger, who had only three TD tosses coming into the game, shook off a sprained left foot, connecting on 24 of his 34 pass attempts as the Steelers (3-2) bounced back from a 17-10 loss last week.

Jonathan Dwyer racked up 107 yards on 11 carries while Hines Ward hauled down two of Roethlisberger's scoring strikes on seven receptions.

Mike Wallace added 82 yards and one touchdown on six catches for Pittsburgh.

The Titans (3-2) could manage only 51 yards and a score on 14 carries from Chris Johnson while Matt Hasselbeck tossed for 262 yards and a touchdown on 29-of-49 passing.

Tennessee saw its three-game winning streak snapped.
