Steelers second year receiver Antonio Brown broke a Steelers record today when he got 2,048 All Purpose yards from Scrimmage on the season.  While doing that he also  plateaued 1,000 yards for the first time in his young career today.  Brown came into the game needing 16 yards to reach 1,000.  He got it on a pass from Charlie Batch in the fourth quarter on a Steelers scoring drive.  Brown caught the ball for a first down and kept the Steelers drive alive.  The drive finished with a touchdown run by Issac Redman.

Brown finished the game with 3 catches and 34 yards.  Bringing his season total to 1,018 yards.  It is great to see Brown get to 1,000 yards.  The Steelers just never seem to have to rebuild.  They just retool and keep going.  Hines Ward was not ready to quit but the Steelers tried to fill in some gaps and Brown was drafted in the sixth round.  He came out and was so explosive that the Steelers could not keep him off the field.  Congrats on both to Antonio Brown.  Great year so far kid.  Lets finish it with another run to the Super Bowl.
