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.

    Looks like we chose the right guy.

    Congrats AB!

    Been saying that all year. We are paying way less than Miami for way more production.

  • Brandon James

    Congrats Brown, you fully deserve it.

  • Douglas Andrews

    AB has earned every penny this year. Could we be looking at the next Hines??? AB is a beast period.

  • Elijah Stevenson

    Antonio Brown ain’t no Hines ward but he’s close with the way he plays the game

  • Douglas Andrews

    Agreed hope we put the loss of M Wallace to rest for good!

  • WilliamSekinger

    Antonio is much much better than Ward was. Ward wasn’t racking up TDs and hundreds of yards every season returning punts while being the #1 receiver and facing the opponents best CBs.

  • WilliamSekinger

    Happy for AB. Such a pleasure to watch him play. He literally picked this team up early in the season with spectular catches and returns.

    Ironically, I think Thigpen set the record a couple days before Christmas in a close loss to the Packers at a snowy Lambeau field that year. A late turnover or something like that happened, causing the loss. The Steelers had already clinched a playoff spot and it was a meaningless game. Just going on memory.

    as much as i would like brown to break hines record i hope he dont hines needs a few years to hold that record for all hes done

  • Steelerfan42football

    I remember the snowy game at the end of the season that the Steelers lost at Lambeau , but I believe that was in 1995 the year we made the SuperBowl. The last game before Christmas in 97 was at Tennessee against the then Tennessee Oilers in Memphis. I know this because I was there.

    Don’t care if he ties it. I’d like to see him break it. Won’t happen though. I don’t see him having 11-12 receptions in the game. I hope Ben doesn’t spend all day passing mostly to him. Ben needs to spread the ball around like he’s been doing. On second thought, screw the record. I’d like Hines to keep it.
