Steelers WR Antonio Brown Goes Over 1,000 Receiving Yards On The Season In Win Over Browns

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown faced his toughest test of the season Sunday as he went against Cleveland Browns cornerback Joe Haden. Needless to say, he passed that test with flying colors in the Steelers 27-11 win.

Haden, who was coming off of two solid games against the Cincinnati Bengals and the Baltimore Ravens, was beaten Sunday by Brown to the tune of six catches for 92 yards and a touchdown. On that 41-yard touchdown, Haden got caught peeking into the Steelers backfield and Brown gained separation as a result. It was just the fifth time this season that Haden had given up a catch good for 20 yards or more.

Five of Brown’s six catches in the game came in the second quarter and four of those came on the Steelers second possession of the quarter that stalled at Browns 46 yard-line.

Brown now has 80 catches on the season and has also now gone over the 1,000 yard receiving mark for the second time in his young career. He set a franchise record Sunday with his 11th consecutive game with five or more catches.

With five games left in the season, Brown only needs 33 receptions and 355 yards receiving in order to set a new Steelers single season receiving records. Also, Brown’s touchdown was his sixth of the season and that is a new career regular-season high for the Central Michigan product, who undoubtedly will be going to the Pro Bowl once again.

    The scary thing about Haden? He can get beat that bad and still catch up and almost make the play!

  • Matt Manzo

    It feels so good to watch him succeed like this after letting Wallace walk! Good for him! Good for us!

    Thank you Antonio Brown for being a bright spot for our offense so far this season!

    Not really. That ball was under thrown by about 7 yards causing AB to completely turn around and almost stop to catch it. That’s the only reason Haden was anywhere near Brown.

    Brown also became only the 4th Steeler to catch 80 passes in a season. I found that one hard to believe, but it goes to show you the Steelers have never really been a passing offense.

    Antonio continues to put up impressive numbers. Rooney’s made the right decision by giving the contract to AB instead of Wallace.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Congratz AB continue your good work
