Markus Wheaton has career day in loss

While Antonio Brown was limited to 6 catches for 51 yards, MarKus Wheaton exploded with a career day, hauling in 9 catches for 201 yards and a touchdown in the Steelers 39-30 loss.

Wheaton was a nightmare for the Seahawks to defend with four-20+ yard catches, including a 69 yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. Wheaton also had a 41 yard reception in the second quarter that setup DeAngelo Williams’ 6 yard TD run to put the Steelers ahead 18-14.

Coming into the contest Wheaton had 16 receptions for 273 yards and 1 TD on the season and just 7 receptions for 45 yards over his previous five games.
