Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown was an All-Pro in 2015 — he finished with 136 receptions, 1,834 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns. However, his stats could have been much better than they were.
Brown caught passes from three different Steelers quarterbacks in 2015 — Ben Roethlisberger, Michael Vick and Landry Jones. In the four games that Roethlisberger missed due to injury, Brown totaled just 17 receptions for 235 yards and zero touchdowns.
One look at Brown’s numbers over the last 16 games he has played with Roethlisberger on the field provides a frightening sight for defensive backs.
Antonio Brown has 152 catches & 2,039 rec yards over the last 16 games where Ben Roethlisberger has played at least 70% of #Steelers snaps.
If the statistics from Brown’s past 16 games took place over the course of one regular season, he would have broken the single-season record for receptions and yards. Those records are currently held by Marvin Harrison (143 in 2002) and Calvin Johnson (1,964 in 2012), respectively.
