Grades: Three Steelers who earned As vs. Raiders
By Tim Weaver
3. Antonio Brown
You thought we were going to forget this guy?
What else is there to say about Antonio Brown except that he’s the best wide receiver in the NFL right now and probably the best in Steelers history?
In case you missed it, Brown put on a show for the ages on Sunday against Oakland. He caught a franchise-high 17 passes and got 284 yards out of it. The raw numbers just don’t do his game justice, though.
Watch Brown’s footwork on this sideline catch:
Brown added another 22 yards rushing, bringing his total to 306 for the game. He also made a crucial catch and run late in the fourth quarter that set up Chris Boswell’s game winning field goal.
Next: Steelers need big second half to make playoffs
He wins games almost single-handedly. End of story.
