Antonio Brown picked up where he left off from a year ago. The Pittsburgh Steelers’ wide receiver nabbed nine balls for 133 yards and picked up his first touchdown of the year. His longest reception came on a 37-yard pass and picked up six first downs with his night’s work as well.
Brown led the NFL in receiving yards in 2014 and has a great shot at repeating that feat in 2015. He currently sits third in the NFL in receiving yards after one week and will be favored to eclipse the 100-yard mark every week he plays. Look for number 84 to be active, early and often.
