Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 6 vs CIN (6 / 5 / 105 / 1 rec)

There were still opportunities for more, but Brown provided the Mortal Kombat finishing move to the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 6. The play may be viewed, by some, as controversial. The play itself did have a ěpickî nature to it where Justin Hunter picked the defender in front of him to allow Antonio Brown to get a free release. The play wasn't called a pick because the defender played so close to the line of scrimmage and there wasn't room for the receivers to get into their routes. Beyond the ěpickî part of the play, Antonio Brown showed amazing athleticism to outrun the coverage and score the game winning touchdown. Brown was also close on another long touchdown catch in the second quarter against Dre Kirkpatrick. Unfortunately, like all day long, Brown was being played extremely physically and was even held on the potential touchdown play.

2018 Week 5 vs ATL (13 / 6 / 101 / 2 rec)

The connection between Ben Roethlisberger and Brown started slow this week. Early in the game Roethlisberger escaped the pocket and threw off his back foot to Brown and it resulted in an interception. This result equals four of Ben's six interceptions coming from targets to Antonio Brown this season. Ben also missed Antonio Brown on a crossing route in second quarter which would have lead to a big gain after the catch and another almost interception where a defender had underneath position on Brown. Things course corrected for Brown and Ben in the third quarter. Brown exploded for two touchdowns. One was a route by Antonio Brown he had ran the exact same route twice against his defender and the second time was the charm. The second touchdown came on a deep throw from Roethlisberger where Brown was released, and the defender couldn't flip his hips and keep up downfield. By the time the over-the-top safety could come over to assist, Brown was off to the races.

2018 Week 4 vs BAL (11 / 5 / 62 / 1 rec)

The receiving weapons for Ben Roethlisberger were not on full display Week 4. Baltimore did have Brown matched up one on one during the first half but started rotating over safety help going into the second half. The most impressive catch of the night for Brown was his touchdown grab over a defender who had excellent coverage on him. Ben Roethlisberger put the ball right where his guy could get it. Unfortunately, even with drawing an additional five targets after his touchdown Antonio and Ben were not on the same page.

2018 Week 3 vs TB (9 / 6 / 50 / 1 rec)

Brown's highlight catch of the day was on a smoke route reception from Ben Roethlisberger. Brown caught the ball, made a defender miss, and destroyed the angle of an oncoming defender. During the last two minutes of the first half Brown helped sustain the drive with a toe tap catch and drew a DPI in the endzone with 10 seconds remaining in the first half.

2018 Week 2 vs KC (17 / 9 / 67 / 0 rec)

It was not a normal Antonio Brown game. Even with high target volume, Brown was mostly targeted on check downs and was being missed deep by Ben Roethlisberger. Emotions ran high as you could see Brown frustrated with the communication between him and his quarterback. Brown did not hesitate to let his Offensive Coordinator know his feelings and was seen arguing on the sideline with him.

2018 Week 1 vs CLE (16 / 9 / 93 / 1 rec)

Brown was clutch and his connection with Ben Roethlisberger bailed out the Steelers when they needed it most. Even with double coverage, Brown caught a 22-yard touchdown after two consecutive scores were called back due to penalty. It isn't like Brown's stats were bad, you'd just like to see more from him when he is targets 16 times.

Our View: Brown was quiet against the Bengals until the game-winning play, but it highlighted his weekly upside if this was a down game until that play. The targets are there for him to deliver on his lofty ADP after the bye.
