Brown is Digest Player of the Week

Wide Receiver

Statistically, it was his best game of the season. Against the Los Angeles Chargers, Antonio Brown caught 10 passes for 154 yards and a 28-yard touchdown in a game the Steelers lost on a final-play field goal, 33-30. Those totals represented the most catches and the most receiving yards in a game so far this season for Brown, and his touchdown marked the 10th straight game this season in which he has gotten into the end zone.

Brown is the Steelers Digest Player of the Week.
