Pittsburgh Steelers standout wide receiver Antonio Brown suffered a left leg injury during the first half of his team’s game against the Patriots. As Brown went to make a catch in the end zone, he got hit by two defenders and didn’t seem to land comfortably.
A grimy football game can be fun, sometimes. Messy, brutal, even a little bit of dirty play can raise the stakes, or at least turn a game into a car wreck that can’t be looked away from. Steelers-Bengals was not fun.
The Steelers are 9-2, they’ve won six straight, and they’re in line for a playoff bye and maybe even home-field advantage in the AFC. Last night, they survived a scare from the Aaron Rodgers-less Packers, thanks to Chris Boswell’s walk-off 53-yard field goal. But we really need to talk about wide receiver Antonio…
Check out the still image above: Steelers receiver Antonio Brown is at about the Chiefs’ 35-yard line and is flanked by two defenders. Kansas City cornerback Phillip Gaines has just tipped the pass; safety Daniel Sorensen is there to make the tackle. And yet, Brown scored a 51-yard TD.
So much for whatever concerns the Steelers might have had about Antonio Brown and his alleged selfishness. With a little more than a week to go until the start of free agency, Pittsburgh inked its star receiver to a contract extension that reportedly makes him the highest-paid wide receiver in the NFL.
So you know that Facebook Live stream in which NFL wide receiver Antonio Brown showed the innards of his Pittsburgh Steelers’ team’s locker room, where coach Mike Tomlin went off during a postgame rant?
When Antonio Brown decided to livestream from the Steelers’ locker room after their win over the Chiefs on Sunday night, you could see the inevitable backlash from a mile away. It came first from grouchy columnists, then from head coach Mike Tomlin, and now Brown has completed the cycle by issuing an apology for…
Bless Antonio Brown, who decided it would be fun to broadcast a live stream of the Steelers’ locker room after their victory over the Chiefs. And it was fun! Guys were dancing and laughing and I genuinely appreciated getting a look into a joyful NFL locker room. I also appreciated Brown recording head coach Mike…
Antonio Brown of the Pittsburgh Steelers leads the NFL in receptions and now, apparently, in identity crises. Some questions and non-answers from a conversation with reporters yesterday, as captured by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:
There’s no such thing as a “perfect game” for a wide receiver, but if such a thing did exist, Antonio Brown came very close to pitching one last night.
Down 29-24 to the Dallas Cowboys with less than a minute to go, the Pittsburgh Steelers set up to spike the ball—except they didn’t, with the fake-spike play giving way to a Ben Roethlisberger touchdown pass to Antonio Brown that gave the Steelers a 30-29 lead.
Steelers receiver Antonio Brown has long been one of the few NFL players willing to thumb his nose (or butt, rather) at the NFL’s joy-killing rules against self expression. It seems like the league has finally had enough of Brown daring to have a good time while playing football, though, as he claims referees…
Washington gave cornerback Josh Norman $50 million in guarantees, money befitting one of the game’s few shutdown corners. But Monday night, it apparently was too much to expect the ‘Skins to use him to try to shut down the Steelers’ Antonio Brown, who only happens to be one of the game’s best receivers.
A football move, what is it? I have no idea, but it is a term that figures into a lot of very confusing calls during NFL games.
A funny thing happened about a decade ago. In a moral panic that took place only inside their own head, NFL executives decided to crack down on player celebrations, the moniker “No Fun League” stuck, and everyone just...accepted it and moved on?
Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown is a contestant on this season of Dancing With The Stars, and he made it through the latest round of cuts thanks to a decent performance on Monday’s episode. After his dance, he was asked what sorts of obstacles he had to overcome while practicing, and the conversation went…
When Antonio Brown suffered a concussion in Saturday’s playoff game from linebacker Vontaze Burfict’s hit, Bengals cornerback Pacman Jones thought the Steelers receiver was embellishing it. Jones said he would only apologize for calling Brown a faker if the wideout wasn’t able to play Sunday against the Broncos. With…
The Steelers have officially ruled Antonio Brown out for Sunday’s game in Denver, which means Pacman Jones owes him an apology.
