Steelers WR Antonio Brown Breaks Franchise Single Season Receiving Yards Record
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown now holds the franchise single-season receiving yardage record thanks to his six catches for 105 yards in the Sunday win over the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field.
Brown now has 101 catches for 1,412 yards on the season and that breaks the record of 1,398 receiving yards set by Yancey Thigpen in 1997.
Brown’s six catches in the game also keeps his season streak alive of registering at least five catches for 50 yards in a game.
Next week, Brown will need 11 catches next week against the Cleveland Browns in order to tie the franchise single-season reception record of 112, which is currently held by Hines Ward.
