The 2014 Pittsburgh Steelers offense was a record-breaking unit. For Ben Roethlisberger, Le'Veon Bell and Antonio Brown, they essentially re-wrote the record books for the Steelers organization at their respective positions. However, Antonio Brown continues to garner accolades on top of the records now set for the Steelers.

Wednesday it was announced Brown was named the AFC Offensive Player of the Month for the month of December. He was a large part of the Steelers going 4-0 in December.

Brown registered 33 receptions for 440 yards (13.3 avg.) with two touchdowns to help lead the Steelers to a 4-0 record in the final month of the regular season. He finished as the league leader in receptions (129) and receiving yards (1,698) and his 13 receiving touchdowns tied for second - all new single season team records.

The last Steelers player to win the AFC Offensive Player of the Month award was Roethlisberger in November of 2013.

The award for Brown comes on the heals of being named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week for his 71 yard punt return in the Week 17 matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals.
