Business is booming’. The WiFi connection is strong. Whatever saying you want to use, Antonio Brown continues to make plays for the offense.
Brown’s stat line of six catches for 74 yards doesn’t jump out at you, but the two touchdowns do. The first one was probably the play of the first half where Ben Roethlisberger improvised and found Antonio Brown streaking down the sideline past the pass coverage. Brown added another touchdown later on on a quick, one-yard connection right before the end of the first half.
While Brown isn’t putting up the numbers we’ve seen him put up over the years, his ability to get open and make plays when the offense needs a play is still something he’s been able to do. A key example of this was early in the second quarter when the Steelers faced a 3rd-and-long and still hadn’t converted a first down yet. Brown ran a fantastic route and gained separation for Big Ben to find him for a first down. It help spark some life into the offense that had been stagnant from the beginning of the game.
