A breakdown of the genius that is Antonio Brown within the Steelers’ offense

New, comments

Antonio Brown is tremendous, but when you look back at some of his plays, he continues to make you shake your head in amazement.

NFL: Green Bay Packers at Pittsburgh Steelers Jim Matthews-USA TODAY Sports

The Pittsburgh Steelers sure did find a winner when they drafted Antonio Brown from Central Michigan in the sixth round of the NFL Draft. While some remain focused on Brown’s overall production, what he and the Steelers have done is to develop a perfect marriage of a star quarterback, a star receiver and an offense which features both players on a regular basis.

After Brown and Ben Roethlisberger stole the show on Sunday Night Football against the Green Bay Packers in Week 12, Brown (and by proxy Roethlisberger) were the main focus of Brian Baldinger’s latest film-room breakdown via his official Twitter page.

Check out his videos below and watch as the Steelers move Brown around in a variety of ways, aiming to get him the space necessary to punish the opposition. It should be noted how dialed-in Roethlisberger was on Sunday night, and some of the passes thrown Brown’s way were as close to perfect as you’ll find on an NFL football field.

(Note: The film room goes from the end of the game (the video below) to the beginning of the game. If you want to watch in chronological order, start from the bottom up.)
