1. Losing Brown Could Have Been a Death Blow
Antonio Brown has done it all this season, and there’s no doubt that he entering Sunday was a legit candidate to be the first ever wide out MVP of the NFL.
Losing him to a calf injury that also will cost him the rest of the regular season totally shifted the Pats game plan to be able to not have to worry about the Steelers best pass catcher.
Give the Steelers fellow wide outs credit for stepping up, and there’s no doubt that Martavis Bryant and JuJu Smith-Schuster played great in the absence of Brown.
Like losing Le’Veon in the AFC Title game a year ago in the first quarter, we can only wonder if having Brown would have clinched what should have been a win for the Steelers.
