Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown might be the best in the business.

Brown showed that, again, in the second quarter Monday night when the Steelers went for it on fourth down and one at the Redskins’ 29-yard line. Ben Roethlisberger made a play-action fake and lofted one for the end zone for Brown, who beat two defenders to make the catch. The PAT gave the Steelers a 7-6 lead.

Roethlisberger was 5-of-6 for 71 yards on the drive. On the touchdown, Brown appeared to rip the ball away from Redskins safety Bashaud Breeland, who had an interception earlier in the game.

Earlier in the drive Brown dropped a pass in traffic. The Redskins challenged, claiming it was a fumble, but the original call of an incomplete pass was upheld.

The Redskins left a bunch of points on the field in the first quarter. This could still end up being a shootout.

    Couldn’t possibly be a fumble. Same old Steelers with good fortune.

    That was a total fumble.

    I must have missed the rule change this offseason that rendered AB incapable of fumbling. That’s on me guys, my bad.

    It would have been a touchdown if he chose Josh Norman’s man also !

    You blind morons calling for a fumble…have you seen football before? In WHAT world is that a catch/run to qualify him as a runner capable of fumbling?
