Brown comes up big...again

They are moments that are difficult to forget, moments when Antonio Brown stepped up and did what he does best – became a game-breaker.

In his career Brown has four-game winning fourth quarter touchdowns, with the most recent one this past week against the Cincinnati Bengals at Paul Brown Stadium.

With just 15 seconds to play, and down 21-20, Ben Roethlisberger went to Brown, who pulled in the reception, never slowing down, and taking it in for the game-winning score on a 31-yard touchdown reception, giving the Steelers a 28-21 victory.

But like I said, it wasn't the first one. Who could ever forget Brown's Christmas miracle, his game-winning catch against the Baltimore Ravens on Christmas Day at Heinz Field in 2016.

The Steelers were down 27-24, with just 1:18 to play, after the Ravens scored a go-ahead touchdown. Ben Roethlisberger, starting at his own 25-yard line, completed eight of eight passes, and spiked the ball twice, as he drove the offense down the field with incredible precision, completing passes to five different receivers.

But the play of the game, and possibly of the season, was a four-yard pass to Antonio Brown where he wouldn't be denied getting into the end zone for the 31-27 win. Brown, who looked like he was stopped short, extended his arm and got the ball over the goal line.

Brown's heroics were also on display at Heinz Field when the Denver Broncos came to town in 2015. Also having a great game, where he finished with 16 receptions for 189 yards and two touchdowns, Brown pulled in a 23-yard reception off of a perfect pass from Roethlisberger, to put the Steelers ahead and secure a 34-27 win.

And of course there was his first game-winning touchdown catch, back in 2014 against the Tennessee Titans at LP Field. Brown got open in the end zone, Roethlisberger found his target, and the Steelers went ahead, 27-24, and held on to defeat the Titans.
