Antonio Brown was named the Steelers’ team MVP this morning. It was the second time in three years Brown earned team MVP. He also won in 2011.
Brown is third in the NFL in receptions and receiving yards. Last week against Green Bay he broke the team record for most receiving yards in a season when he passed Yancey Thigpen. He enters the regular-season finale against Cleveland with 101 receptions and 1,412 yards. He needs 12 receptions against the Browns to break the franchise record for most receptions in a season.
Brown also has 29 punt returns for 388 yards and a touchdown. He has five returns of 40 yards or more in 2013.
The MVP is voted upon by players.
