Receiving: 4 / 35 / 1 on 4 targets
Miller caught all four passes thrown his way, including a short pass on the right side of the field that he took for a 22 yard touchdown.
Week 2 vs. BUF
Receiving: 2 / 34 / 0 on 3 targets
Miller had receptions for five and 29 yards.
Week 3 vs. SF
Receiving: 4 / 82 / 0 on 5 targets
Miller was targeted a team high five times. He had a very good game and led the Steelers with four catches for 82 yards. Miller had receptions of 16, 20, 29, and 17 yards. He had an acrobatic 16 yard reception reversed, when he was ruled out of bounds.
Week 4 vs. ARI
Receiving: 3 / 46 / 0 on 6 targets
Miller hauled in three passes for 46 yards mainly up the middle of the Cardinals pass defense.
Week 5 vs. SEA
Receiving: 4 / 44 / 1 on 5 targets
Miller was Roethlisberger's clear go-to guy in the clutch. While his yardage total will not impress anyone, his four catches were all for first downs, one of which was a touchdown. Along with Wilson, Miller was a clear beneficiary of the injuries to Ward and Holmes.
Week 7 vs. DEN
Receiving: 5 / 50 / 2 on 5 targets
Miller was Pittsburgh's third most targeted receiver, and was especially effective in the red zone. He caught two short touchdown passes from Ben Roethlisberger.
Week 8 vs. CIN
Receiving: 2 / 42 / 0 on 3 targets
Miller caught two of the three passes thrown his way for 42 yards. He was a tough cover on those passes and showed field vision by seeing his receivers blocking downfield.
Week 9 vs. BAL
Receiving: 2 / 17 / 1 on 2 targets
Miller's only catch in the first half was a 17 yard touchdown reception for the Steelers' first score of the game. He added another catch in the second half for no yards.
Week 10 vs. CLE
Receiving: 5 / 71 / 1 on 7 targets
Miller was quiet for most of the game, but came on in the fourth quarter with a couple of big catches, including the go ahead touchdown reception on a sharply thrown short pass where Miller made a nice hands catch and hung on despite a hard hit.
Week 11 vs. NYJ
Receiving: 2 / 36 / 0 on 3 targets
The big tight end had a relatively quiet game, but New York limited the entire Pittsburgh offense. He caught two passes for 36 yards.
Week 12 vs. MIA
Miller was a non factor in this game (no targets), other than an odd pass interference penalty called against him in the second quarter that negated a Steelers first down deep in Miami territory.
Week 13 vs. CIN
Receiving: 4 / 30 / 0 on 5 targets
The first pass Miller's way fell incomplete but he went on to grab his next four targets, all of which came in the second quarter. Two of his catches went for first downs, and he took a Ben Roethlisberger shovel pass down to the Cincinnati five yard line.
Week 14 vs. NE
Receiving: 4 / 28 / 0 on 4 targets
Miller caught three passes on the Steelers' first possession of the game but was not heard from again until the fourth quarter.
Week 15 vs. JAX
Receiving: 2 / 24 / 1 on 4 targets
Miller caught the Steelers' first touchdown pass. He was the target on the play, but the pass was tipped by Brent Hawkins. Fortunately, for Pittsburgh, the pass continued in its original direction right to Miller. He now has a career high seven touchdowns on the season. Miller later dropped what would have been another touchdown reception. Miller's other catch came on the Steelers' final play of the game. He was stopped for a six yard gain on fourth down and seven to go. Miller made a great diving effort, using his hand as a catapult, but the officials marked him just short.
Week 16 vs. STL
Receiving: 1 / 7 / 0 on 2 targets
Miller was not much of a factor in this game as he only had one catch for seven yards.
Week 17 vs. BAL
Receiving: 3 / 20 / 0 on 3 targets
Regular target of Roethlisberger, Miller was quiet in this game, only catching one pass in the second half.
Week 18 vs. JAX
Receiving: 8 / 85 / 1 on 8 targets
Miller caught eight balls thrown his way for 85 yards and a touchdown. He was very reliable and often able to make the first defender miss. That being said, his routes were generally short and his longest gain on the night was 16 yards. The ball Miller did not catch went off of the end of his hands and was caught by Hines Ward for a 33 yard gain.
