Steelers fans alter Antonio Brown jerseys to show support for Browns

The Steelers will be eliminated from playoff contention with a loss.

"A number of Steelers employees, players, even the team owner himself Art Rooney II reached out to Antonio Brown, and he did not return any of their texts or messages".

Brown was not allowed to play in an "embarrassing" display, as one Steelers player put it. If they win, they need the Ravens to lose to the Browns in order to make the postseason.

The 8-7-1 Steelers are one of the most talented teams in recent memory to miss the playoffs.

The touchdown passes also extended Mayfield's streak of games with a touchdown pass to 13, the fifth longest in Browns history. We stand by our work.


NFL Network's Aditi Kinkhabwala reported that Tomlin did not address the Brown situation with any other players during exit interviews on Monday.

The Steelers did manage to narrowly avoid disaster and beat the lowly Bengals, but it was too little, too late.

24 hours later and the truth of why he was out came out, and it had nothing to do with an injury. He arrived at Heinz Stadium on Sunday expecting to play and when he did not, Brown left by the half.

Browns rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield was fined $10,026 by the National Football League for unsportsmanlike conduct related to a touchdown celebration with offensive coordinator Freddie Kitchens in the second quarter of last week's 26-18 win over the Cincinnati Bengals. Such is the power of a well-timed takeaway in the NFL.
