Congratulations to Steelers Antonio Brown

Steelers WR Antonio Brown sets another record.

Gregory Shamus

With a third-quarter catch down the sideline, Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown became the first player in NFL history to have five catches and 50 yards in 20 consecutive games.

He broke the mark previously held by Jets and Redskins WR Laveraneus Coles on a challenged catch in a tied game with 10:21 left in the third quarter.

He needed the fifth catch to break the record, having already eclipsed the 50-yard mark. With it, he was at 111 yards on five catches with two of those going for touchdowns, the first of them being perhaps the finest grab he has made to date.

He's a shining star in another dominant Steelers offensive performance. After Ben Roethlisberger hit Heath Miller for his third touchdown of the game to take a 24-17 lead in the third quarter (a drive extended by Brown's amazing, record-breaking catch), the Steelers had 328 yards on seven drives, scoring on four consecutive drives, not counting the end of the first half.
