LATROBE, Pa. -- If you haven't heard about Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Antonio Brown's streak of 33 games with at least five catches and 50 yards -- by far an NFL record -- then you will after the 2015 season.
Because that streak is going to 49 games, said former Steelers teammate and ESPN NFL analyst Ryan Clark, who calls the streak "insane."
"I think he does it again this year," said Clark, who played 13 years in the league, eight with Pittsburgh. "The passing game is tailored around him, but also because he can run every route and runs them so well that he can always get yards and catches."
Early in 2014, Brown broke Laveraneus Coles' streak of 19 straight games. Then he kept going, all the way through a playoff loss to Baltimore.
Brown also leads the league in yards (3,197) and catches (239) since 2013.
Guard David DeCastro says Brown's feat is like an impressive hitting streak in baseball. He isn't surprised he's gone two years without one week of dropoff.
"He's so quick and athletic in tight spaces when where a play breaks down, he's finding an open space," DeCastro said.
