Steelers WR Antonio Brown sets franchise record for yards, receptions on Sunday
Sunday November 8th, 2015

Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown had a marvelous afternoon on Sunday, totaling 306 yards in a 38–35 win over the Raiders.

Brown set franchise records with 17 catches for 284 yards, breaking Plaxico Burress’s mark of 253 yards against the Falcons in 2012.

He also added 22 more on the ground.

He is the second player in NFL history with at least 17 catches and 280 yards in a game, joining Terrell Owens. It’s also the biggest receiving performance since Calvin Johnson’s 329-yard game in October 2013.

The Steelers did receive some bad news, though, as quarterback Ben Roethlisberger left with a foot injury.

The team draws Cleveland in Week 10.
