Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Antonio Brown made quite a statement against the Indianapolis Colts in week 13 with his goal-post grab after returning a 71-yard punt for a touchdown.  It wasn’t the hilarious leap at the end of the game or the ensuing penalty that earned him the honor of being named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week, but Brown’s on-field performance.

Brown put together 74 punt return yards and became the first player in franchise history to record a punt return for a touchdown and two receiving touchdowns in a single game.  Brown is also one of three Steelers players to record 1,500 punt return yards on his career and has been honored for special teams player of the week in the AFC for the third time (career).
