The awards keep piling up for Pittsburgh Steelers star wide receiver Antonio Brown, who had a remarkable 2015 season.
On the evening before the Super Bowl, Brown was handed two awards at the NFL Honors ceremony.
First, he took home the “Greatness on the Road” award which honors the most impressive individual performance by a player in a road game. Brown earned this for his 13 catch, 187 yard outing against the Cleveland Browns on January 3rd.
Brown also won the “Fantasy Player of the Year” award. For the season Brown totaled 136 catches (tied for first in the league), 1,834 receiving yards (second most) and caught ten touchdown passes. He added another touchdown and 212 yards on punt returns.
