Brown due for big game?
Antonio Brown has been tough for opposing teams to stop. Can the Indianapolis Colts contain him when they face the Pittsburgh Steelers in Sunday Night Football?
According to oddsmakers at RealBets, the Steelers are the clear favorite in this game, as Pittsburgh is getting odds of -9 points at home against the Colts. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 50.5 points. This game takes place tonight at 8:25PM ET on NBC.
When Ben Roethlisberger is healthy, the Steelers are a tough offense to stop and Brown is a big threat on the field. On the season, Brown has 85 receptions for 1,192 yards and five touchdowns. Brown has eclipsed 100 yards receiving in three of his last five and has at least six receptions in five straight games. For today’s meeting with the Colts, Brown has been given an over/under of 7.5 catches and 102.5 yards.
The Colts don’t have a tremendous pass defense and they have struggled to contain receivers. Indy has allowed over 2,000 yards to receivers and a total of 12 touchdowns to the position. Brown will certainly be targeted a lot, as he has 115 targets this season, which ranks fifth in the NFL. His 85 receptions and 1,192 yards are second in the league behind Julio Jones. Look for more of the same tonight from Brown in what should be a big day for him.
