Steelers WR Antonio Brown Continues His March Towards Franchise History In Win Over Bills
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown played a big role in the 23-10 win Sunday over the Buffalo Bills as he caught another six passes for 104 yards to go along with two punt returns for 74 yards.
Sunday marked Brown’s fifth career 100-yard receiving game and his second this season.
Brown now has 67 catches for 805 yards on the season and he remains on track to break a few of the franchise receiving records belonging to former Steelers wide receivers Hines Ward and Yancey Thigpen if he continues on with his current pace.
Ward currently owns the Steelers franchise record for most catches in the season with 112 that he set in 2002 and after his performance on Sunday, Brown needs just 46 catches in the last seven games to break it.
With his 805 yards receiving, Brown needs 594 yards to break Thigpen’s single-season receiving yardage record that he set in 1997.
