HEATH MILLER
Tight End

His 10 catches on the afternoon represented a career-high, and the 85 receiving yards those receptions netted allowed him to pass Hall of Fame receiver Lynn Swann for fourth place on the franchise’s all-time list in that category. He also caught a touchdown pass that was nullified by offsetting penalties only to come back three plays later to catch another one that gave the Steelers a 24-17 lead late in the third quarter.

Heath Miller is the Steelers Digest Player of the Week for his performance in the team’s 27-24 loss to Tampa Bay at Heinz Field.

Also considered were Le’Veon Bell, who had 63 yards rushing and another 46 on receptions for 107 yards from scrimmage; Antonio Brown, who caught seven passes for 131 yards and two touchdowns, while also completing one pass for 17 yards; Ben Roethlisberger, who completed 29-of-40 for 314 yards, with three touchdowns, no interceptions, and a rating of 120.2; and Lawrence Timmons, who led the team with 10 tackles.
