Players got it right in naming Antonio Brown Steelers Team MVP

 

The Big Ben – Antonio Brown Debate It’s no secret that Ben Roethlisberger is under appreciated by his teammates but Roethlisberger’s teammates got it right today in voting wide receiver Antonio Brown the Steelers Most Valuable Player. This marks the second time in Brown’s four-year career that he has received the honor. He becomes the 11th player in team history to be named Steelers’ Most Valuable Player on multiple occasions. Brown is having a truly special season with 101 receptions, 1,412 receiving yards and eight receiving touchdowns. He has recorded at least 5 receptions and 50 receiving yards in 15 straight games, a team record. Brown has also been a dynamic punt returner, averaging 13.4 yards per punt return.
