On Sunday, the Pittsburgh Steelers handed the Kansas City Chiefs their first loss of the season in an exciting 19-13 win that went down to the wire.
During the game, running back LeVeon Bell and wide receiver Antonio Brown became the first teammates since 1933 to go over 700 all-purpose yards after the first six games of the NFL season.
In six games, Bell has 550 rushing yards and 156 receiving yards, while Brown, who leads the league in receiving, has 48 catches for 700 yards.
The two were at their best on Sunday with Bell rushing for 179 yards and 1 touchdown on 32 carries, giving him his 4th consecutive 100 yard rushing game against the Chiefs. Brown caught 8 passes for 155 yards, which included his game winning 51-yard touchdown catch, which has been called the catch of the year.
“It was amazing. It was a crazy catch,” Bell said of Brown’s sensational play. “AB stayed with it, kept his concentration. I see him do a lot of concentration drills, and it just paid off today. Then he turned on those burners (and) got to the end zone.”
“AB’s a great player, and he’s going to make great plays all the time.”
While Pittsburgh’s stars continue to put up big numbers, they have also helped the Steelers win games this season. And when both players put up the type of numbers they did on Sunday, the Steelers have been very difficult to beat.
“Booming,” Brown told NFL Network when asked about how things are going between himself, Bell and Ben Roethlisberger, who completed 68 percent of his passes on Sunday. “We continue to work. We got a lot of work ahead of us, but we feel great about this win today.”
“We’re just singularly focused.”
