Antonio Brown Flipped Past Heath Miller In Career Receiving Yardage On Sunday

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown is currently in the midst of what could be another career year and in Sunday’s win over the Cleveland Browns, the former sixth-round draft pick passed one of his current teammates on the franchises career receiving yardage list.

Brown, who now has 469 regular-season receptions for 6,400 yards, passed tight end Heath Miller in career receiving yardage on Sunday. That now puts him in third place overall on the franchise’s all-time receiving yardage list behind only Hines Ward (12,083) and John Stallworth (8,723).

With his two touchdown catches in Sunday’s game against the Browns, Brown also moved into ninth place on the franchise’s all-time touchdown reception list (33) ahead of former Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace (32).

Currently, Brown leads the NFL in receiving yards (1,141) and yards from scrimmage (1,169). Additionally, he is currently the league-leader this season in 100-yard games (6), receptions of 25 yards or more (12), 3rd down receptions (27) and 3rd down receiving yards (504).

Brown’s 1,141 receiving yards so far this year are the second-most by any NFL player in the first 10 games of a season in the Super Bowl era, since 1966.

In order to best the career-highs that he set in receptions (129) and receiving yardage (1,698) last season, Brown needs to average 8.5 catches and 93 yards receiving a game in the Steelers final 6 contests. That quest will begin in Week 12 when the Steelers travel to play the Seattle Seahawks after their Week 11 bye.
