One often-mentioned aspect of Pittsburgh's 34-20 win at Arizona in Week 7 is second-year WR Antonio Brown's 103 yards receiving - second-highest on the team.
What hasn't been mentioned much, in this game and on the season, is the impact Brown is making overall.
Combining receiving yards, rushing yards and punt and kick returns, Brown has 953 total yards gained this season, but the flashes of brilliance he's showing - in particular, the catch pictured above, as well as several nearly-broken returns he's had in seven games - is part of Pittsburgh's offensive resurgence since they scored 10 points in a Week 4 loss at Houston.
Those targets are coming plenty often as well. While Mike Wallace leads the team with 51, Brown is a surprising second, just three behind Wallace at 48. Brown was targeted a team-high nine times against Arizona.
It'll be important for New England to remember No. 84 in Week 8, considering the Patriots have given up the most passing plays of 20 yards or more (37) and are 25th in passer rating against (92.0).
