Antonio Brown Fantasy Update: Steelers WR Blows Up With Late Touchdown Catch

The Pittsburgh Steelers got into a dog-fight with the Cleveland Browns, but they were able to emerge victorious 14-3. The game was 7-3 heading into the final few minutes when the Steelers took over at their own 20-yard line following an end zone interception of Colt McCoy. One the ensuing drive, Isaac Redman rushed up the middle for one yard on the first play as the Steelers looked content to try and run out the clock. On the next play, though, Ben Roethlisberger connected with Antonio Brown on a 79-yard catch and run for the final score.

Brown was having a solid enough day with four catches for 72 yards. However, the 79-yard touchdown grab gave Brown a career game. His previous career high in yards was 109 yards against the Baltimore Ravens earlier this season. Brown was expected to have some bigger numbers with Emmanuel Sanders sidelined, and he did not disappoint. He has emerged as an extremely solid number two receiver behind Mike Wallace. For the 2011 season, Brown has 55 catches, 925 yards and two touchdowns.
