The Pittsburgh Steelers Pro Bowl wide receiver gets the honor of AFC North Offensive Player of the Year by ESPN.com voters.

The 2014 Pittsburgh Steelers offense was the best statistical offense in franchise history. Setting both team and personal marks along the way, it seemed to be a given there would be plenty of postseason awards given out to the players who made the offense as great as it was.

Wide receiver Antonio Brown was recently named the AFC North Offensive Player of the Year as voted on by ESPN.com's NFL Nation writers.

Brown was more than deserving of the honor as he led the league in yards receiving (1,698) as well as receptions (129). All while finishing tied for second in touchdowns scored among NFL wide receivers with 13 scores. Brown was selected to the Pro Bowl as well as a first-team All-Pro selection.

Brown narrowly beat out two of his teammates for the award. Running back Le'Veon Bell, the Steelers' 2014 Team MVP and also a first-team All-Pro selection, was the second place finisher while quarterback Ben Roethlisberger rounded out the top 3.

Those three players, affectionately known as the 'Killer B's',  have Steelers fans excited for the future and what is in store for an offense looking to only improve on their record-breaking 2014 season.
