The Pittsburgh Steelers topped the Denver Broncos on Sunday 34-27, keeping their playoff hopes alive. And those hopes wouldn’t be possible without the stellar play of the Steelers’ star receiver, Antonio Brown.
When Brown and his many unusual haircuts isn’t wearing Nike everything in Champs Sports ads with DJ Khaled, he’s embarrassing defenses with his game-changing plays.
Steelers’ veteran quarterback Ben Roethlisberger connected with Brown on a 23-yard touchdown pass late in the fourth quarter Sunday, giving the team the lead and what would eventually be the final score of the game. Brown — who had Christmas-light images on his white Nike Alpha Pro 3/4 TD cleats — made 16 catches for 189 yards and two touchdowns yesterday.
For the season, Brown has 116 catches totaling 1,586 yards and nine touchdowns. His 1,586 yards is a league best, currently beating out Julio Jones of the Atlanta Falcons (1,544), Odell Beckham Jr. of the New York Giants (1,396), DeAndre Hopkins of the Houston Texans (1,315), and Brandon Marshall of the New York Jets (1,261).
Brown and the Steelers are second in the AFC North standings (9-5) behind the Cincinnati Bengals (11-3). The Steelers have two games remaining against the division’s worst teams, the Baltimore Ravens (4-10) and the Cleveland Browns (3-11). The Steelers lost to the Ravens 23-20 during a Week 4 game and trounced the Browns during its week 10 matchup, 30-90.
