Player of the Week

JuJu is Digest Player of the Week

Wide Receiver_

There wasn't much that came out of Sunday night's Wild Card Round game at Heinz Field worth celebrating, but there still were some individuals who distinguished themselves over the course of the Browns' 48-37 victory over the Steelers.

One of those individuals was JuJu Smith-Schuster. With a pass-first offense throughout much of the 2020 season, the Steelers leaned even more heavily in that direction once the Browns jumped out to a 28-0 lead at the end of the first quarter. When the game ended, Smith-Schuster led the Steelers with 13 catches for 157 yards (12.1 average) and a 5-yard touchdown. He is the Steelers Digest Player of the Week.

Also considered were Diontae Johnson, who finished the game with 11 catches for 117 yards (10.6 average); and James Conner, who finished with 67 yards from scrimmage and a rushing touchdown that he made possible with a second-effort 1-yard run to converted a fourth-and-1 from the 2-yard line, to go along with a reception on a successful 2-point conversion.
