Brown secured four of 10 targets for 65 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 29-14 victory over the Bengals.
Brown entered the game sitting first in the league in targets (74), receptions (48), receiving yards (700), and catches of 20-plus yards (11). His biggest knock was his inability to reach pay dirt on a regular basis. Despite a tough matchup against a Bengals secondary that surrendered the third-fewest receiving touchdowns in the league prior to kickoff, that notion should be a lesser concern moving forward now that Brown has seen multiple red-zone targets for the third time in five weeks while catching a touchdown for the second time in as many games. Up next for the All-Pro wideout is a date with a Lions defense that's surrendered the 24th-most receiving yards per outing through Week 7.
Brown caught eight of 10 targets for 155 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 19-13 win over the Chiefs.
Despite plenty of attention from Marcus Peters, Brown rose to the occasion and eclipsed 150 yards for the second straight week. A large chunk of his production came on a 51-yard catch-and-run for a touchdown in the fourth quarter that ultimately decided the game. While Brown is accustomed to posting big numbers, he has been especially sharp in 2017 and is currently on pace to top his career high of 1,834 receiving yards set two years ago. He will look to continue his torrid start to the season next week against the Bengals.
Brown hauled in 10 of 19 targets for 157 yards in Sunday's 30-9 loss to Jacksonville.
Brown saw no shortage of volume in this one after being held to 34 yards and throwing a tirade on the sideline last week. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was able to hook up with his top wide receiver for some big plays, including a 49-yard connection on Pittsburgh's first play from scrimmage, but the pair failed to get into the end zone while Roethlisberger was picked off five times. A lack of touchdowns is the only thing holding Brown back this season, as just one of his 40 catches for 545 yards through five weeks has found paydirt.
Brown caught four of nine targets for 34 yards in Sunday's 26-9 win over the Ravens.
Brown was easily the team's most targeted wideout, but he struggled to get on the same page with Ben Roethlisberger on the day. He watched as the team fed Le'Veon Bell a massive workload and grew frustrated to the point of throwing objects on the sideline. Brown racked up 26 catches for 354 yards over the season's first three weeks and should bounce back next week against the Jaguars, as his team will likely make it a priority to get him involved from the jump.
Brown hauled in 10 of 14 targets for 110 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 23-17 overtime loss at Chicago.
Brown was the only Pittsburgh player to get much going in a tame performance for this normally explosive offense. His seven-yard touchdown consisted of him catching the ball against off coverage and beating the defender one-on-one to stretch the ball across the plane. With 354 receiving yards in his first three games, Brown has lived up to his status as the top wide receiver off most boards, despite failing to get into the end zone until Sunday.
