Though the Pittsburgh Steelers had some disappointing moments in November, wide receiver Antonio Brown was a bright spot. He had 39 receptions for 521 yards and three touchdowns. He also stuck a front flip in the endzone. Some players would be happy with those statistics over an entire season, but those are Brown's numbers for a single month, a month that included a bye week.

Antonio Brown's best game of the season was against the Oakland Raiders in front of a home crowd. By the end of that game, he had an impressive 284 yards on 17 receptions, an average of 16.7 yards per catch. Against the Browns, AB was also on fire with ten receptions for 139 yards and two touchdowns.

November is not the first time Antonio Brown won the AFC Offensive Player of the Month honor.  Brown also won the award for his accomplishments in December 2014. That month, he had three games with over 100 receiving yards and two touchdowns, including one en route to a victory over the Cincinnati Bengals for 63 yards.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are currently 2nd in the AFC North with a record of 6-5. They will take on the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday night.
