Steelers WR Antonio Brown On Pace To Break Franchise Receiving Records

With half of a season left to played, Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown is currently on pace to break several franchise receiving records in 2014.

In the Sunday win over the Indianapolis Colts, Brown registered 10 more catches for 133 yards and two touchdowns. For the season, he now has 60 catches for 852 yards and seven touchdowns. If he duplicates those numbers over the course of the next eight games, he will easily set new franchise single-season records in all three of those statistical categories.

Hines Ward currently holds the Steelers franchise single-season record in receptions with 112. He set that record in 2002.  Ward also has a share of the Steelers single-season touchdown reception record as he, Louis Lipps and Buddy Dial are all tied at the top with 12.

Brown currently owns the franchise single-season record in receiving yardage thanks to his 1,499 yard performance in 2013 and he only needs 648 more yards to break that.

Brown will enter Week 9 as the league leader in receptions. As far as receiving yardage goes, he only trails Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton by 14 yards.
