It was a great week to be Antonio Brown of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Not only did he light up the top-ranked Denver Broncos defense in Week 15 to the tune of 16 catches 189 yards and two touchdowns, but he was also named the AFC Player of the Week.

This honor simply adds to the accolades which have already been bestowed on Brown throughout this 2015 season:

  • Brown won the AFC Player of the month award in November
  • Was the AFC Special Teams player of the week following the team's Week 13 win against the Colts
  • and was recently named to his fourth Pro Bowl

If that isn't enough to make you shake your head in disbelief, the following tweet will:

Antonio Brown has accumulated 116 catches, 1,586 yards receiving and 9 touchdowns throughout the 2015 season. These mind-blowing statistics are also without Ben Roethlisberger at quarterback for 4 games earlier this season. Steelers fans everywhere are more than happy that Brown is a member of their favorite team, and will help bring home a 7th Lombardi trophy to the Steel City.
