Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 9 vs BAL (16 / 11 / 144 / 1 rec)

Once again, Brown was the focal point of the Steelers' offense, as he was targeted 16 times and managed to catch 11 passes for 144 yards receiving and a touchdown. Brown's touchdown came in the fourth quarter on a 15-yard hitch route, where after catching the pass, he ran cross-field for an additional 35 yards for the touchdown. In the third quarter, Brown beat double-coverage and was wide open for what would have been a 50-yard touchdown pass that Ben Roethlisberger dramatically underthrew by ~7 yards. Brown's dominance of his coverage backs is underscored by the number of penalties that he draws each week; this week, his defenders were called for multiple holding and defensive pass interference penalties as they tried to contain him.

2014 Week 10 vs NYJ (9 / 8 / 74 / 0 rec)

The ultraconsistent Brown finally had a letdown game in Week #10. He fumbled deep in Steelers' territory on his first touch of the game, a bubble screen in the first quarter, which led to a Jets' touchdown just a few plays later. He subsequently muffed a punt in the second quarter that set up the Jets for another score, but he received a reprieve when Nick Folk missed a 45-yard field goal shortly thereafter. Brown did manage to catch 8 of his 9 targets, several of which were high-value targets in the redzone; he just missed a touchdown in the fourth quarter when he caught a pass at the 5-yard line and juked the defender, but was caught at the 1-yard line by a linebacker from behind to save the touchdown.

2014 Week 11 vs TEN (11 / 9 / 91 / 1 rec)

Brown bounced back off a disappointing Week #10 performance, where he was unable to amass 100 yards or a touchdown for the first time in several weeks. Against the Titans, Antonio Brown caught 9 of his 11 targets for 91 yards receiving and a touchdown. The touchdown, which put the Steelers ahead for good, came on an inside release route under double coverage late in the fourth quarter; on the play, Brown ran a route directly into the endzone, shifted right just long enough to get committal from the coverage corners, and bolted left to find a perfectly-placed Ben Roethlisberger pass for a 12-yard touchdown. Brown continues to do everything that the Steelers ask of him and is a must-play in all fantasy formats.
