Brown made three receptions (on five targets) for 38 yards during Sunday's win in Seattle. Brown was ready when called upon, as he entered following Michael Floyd's hamstring injury in the fourth quarter. With the Cardinals in need of a response after Seattle's defense set up two easy touchdowns, Brown recorded receptions of 10 and 20 yards on the team's first touchdown drive, during which he also broke up a likely interception by Richard Sherman. During Arizona's next possession, Brown made a crucial third-down grab in a drive that ended with Andre Ellington's game-sealing 48-yard touchdown run. If Floyd's injury lingers this week, Brown appears to be the next man up in the offense, which has equated to 14.2 YPC in brief appearances in 2015.
