Steelers Gab Player of Week 14: Heath Miller

IMG_20151215_030916

Heath Miller is one of the most recognizable players on the Pittsburgh Steelers roster.  The veteran tight end hears fans yell his first name every time he touches the ball.

Miller has been an important cog in the Steelers offense and led the team in receptions against the Cincinnati Bengals in week 14 of the 2015 NFL regular season.  Miller recorded ten catches for 66 yards; his third career game with ten receptions.  Four of those catches converted necessary third downs.  His blocking helped clear the way for running back DeAngelo Williams’ outstanding rushing performance, paving the way to a Steelers win and earning the Steelers Gab Player of the Week honors.

Honorable Mentions

Chris Boswell – made four field goals and three points after the touchdown, leading the Steelers in scoring. Five of his eight kickoffs went for touchbacks.

William Gay – recorded a pick-six for a touchdown, tying Hall of Famer Rod Woodson with five interceptions for a touchdown on his career.

Williams – scored the only two offensive touchdowns against the Bengals in a 33-20 victory while rushing 23 times for 76 yards. By adding 15 yards receiving, he finished the game with 91 yards from scrimmage.

  1. Excellent choices all, P Brady, but Heath Miller is a living legend. Players of his caliber don’t come along often, and his hands are exceptional. Williams and Gay also played very well. Finally, the Wizard of Boz has flat out saved the season, and you have to love any kicker who gets flagged and fined for unnecessary roughness while tackling a return man by the back of his helmet! Shades of Norm “Big Hit” Johnson.
