    Steelers WR Antonio Brown nabs five passes for 42 yards in loss

    Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown caught five passes for 42 yards on nine targets in Thursday's 23-20 overtime loss to the Ravens.The Steelers ran a very conservative offense with Mike Vick under center, and the veteran quarterback didn't make any kind of case for the team to open things up next week in San Diego. Of course, Brown still should have managed a decent stat line, but he dropped what would have been a 36-yard touchdown pass on one of Vick's few nice throws. Although it was a difficult, sliding catch, a player of Brown's caliber makes that play at least three-quarters of the time.It's usually unwise to make too much of any single game, but it's pretty clear (if it wasn't already) that Brown's value needs a significant adjustment for the drop-off from Ben Roethlisberger to Vick. With a weak San Diego run defense on the Week 5 schedule, the Steelers figure to lean heavily on Le, hoping to minimize Vick's impact.

    Steelers WR Antonio Brown records another 100-yard game

    Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown had 11 catches on 13 targets for 108 yards Sunday against the Rams. Brown continues to be the most consistent receiver in football, though things could change after quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was knocked out of the game because of a knee injury, leaving Michael Vick under center. There are concerns that Roethlisberger could miss a number of weeks due to the ailment, and Vick's chemistry with Brown will be a huge factor in how well the Steelers play in Roethlisberger's absence. Up next is a quick turnaround to face the Ravens on Thursday.
