Antonio Brown sets franchise record against Oakland Raiders

Antonio Brown saved his best for the Pittsburgh Steelers when they needed him most, catching 17 passes for 284 yards, both franchise records in their 38-25 win over the Oakland Raiders.

After losing Ben Roethlisberger to an apparent leg injury in the fourth quarter, Brown stepped up to haul in a slant pass and turned it into a 54-yard catch and run, setting up the game winning field goal.

Brown was simply outstanding. His 284 reception yards were the most in a game since Megatron’s 329 yard game in 2013. He’s already over the 1,000 yard mark for the season, second to Falcons receiver Julio Jones. 

Steelers fans can only hope the Big Ben’s injury will not require him to miss more time than the expected 1-2 weeks, as it will be tough for Brown to keep up his torrid pace without him.
