Steelers receiver Antonio Brown has become a major threat for the team’s offense. He also has become a dangerous punt returner.
The latter skill set has secured for Brown the AFC special-teams player of the week award.
Brown’s 60-yard punt return for a touchdown broke the back of the Bengals, putting the Steelers up 28-7.
Brown is third in the AFC with 330 punt return yards this season. He is second in the AFC with a 12.2 punt return average.
A sixth-round pick from Central Michigan in 2010, Brown averages 12.2 yards per punt return, good for second in the AFC. He leads the conference with 1,665 all-purposes yards.
