Brown brought in all six of his targets for 96 yards and a touchdown in the Steelers' 52-21 win over the Panthers on Thursday. Brown paced the Steelers in both receptions and receiving yardage while also getting into the end zone for the seventh consecutive game. The 30-year-old has nine of his 10 scores on the season over that span, and he's caught no fewer than five passes in any contest this season. While Brown's overall target volume is slightly down (10.6 per game, as compared to 11.6 per contest last season), he's still on pace for a sixth straight 100-reception campaign. He'll look to continue building up his numbers versus the Jaguars in Week 11 matchup Nov. 18.
Brown was cited by police Thursday in Ross Township, Pa. and charged with reckless driving, Channel 11 News Pittsburgh reports. According to the report, Brown was traveling in excess of 100 miles per hour before being pulled over by police. A Steelers spokesman relayed that the team is aware of the incident, but it likely won't impact Brown's availability for the Thursday night game against the Panthers. Though Brown's 11.6 yards per catch average is his lowest mark since 2010, the wideout has reached the end zone nine times through the Steelers' eight games, putting him on pace to surpass the career-high 13 touchdowns he posted in 2014.
Brown caught five of 11 targets for 42 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 23-16 win over the Ravens. Brown stretched his touchdown streak to six games with a six-yard score in the second quarter. He's operated below his lofty usual standards with only two triple-digit yardage performances thus far this season, but Brown's made up for that lack of yardage with nine touchdowns. Brown and the Steelers will have a quick turnaround with the Panthers coming to town Thursday in Week 10.
Brown caught six of his eight targets for 74 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 33-18 win over Cleveland. Brown caught a 43-yard touchdown from Ben Roethlisberger for Pittsburgh's first score, then added his second on a 1-yard screen pass just before halftime. His sideline grumbling earlier this season is a distant memory, as Brown has now scored a touchdown in five straight games and has eight of the team's 14 receiving scores through seven games. He'll now face the Ravens defense in Week 9, against which he caught five passes for 62 yards and a touchdown in a Week 4 loss.
Brown caught five of six targets for 105 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 28-21 win over the Bengals. Brown was quiet for most of the game, but he won it by taking a slant 31 yards to the house with his team down 21-20 and 10 seconds remaining. The star wide receiver actually ranked fifth on the Steelers in targets, but his explosiveness allows Brown to excel even during dips in workload. Pittsburgh will be on bye in Week 7, at which time star running back Le'Veon Bell is scheduled to return to the team.
