Antonio Brown, Wide Receiver
Brown put on a show again on Sunday. His speed and elusiveness were on full display, to the tune of seven catches, 147 yards and two touchdowns. The Lions worked hard to try and bracket Brown, throw him off his rhythm and not give him those creases to run through. Nevertheless, Brown was once again able to exploit a suspect secondary with his quickness.
Heath Miller, Tight End
It was a welcome return of Miller to the passing game. The Steelers flooded the middle of the field with players on Sunday, and this gave Miller the opportunity to sneak out into the short and intermediate flats, where Roethlisberger found him. The Steelers would do well to try to help Miller maintain this level of productivity for the remainder of the season.
Jerricho Cotchery, Wide Receiver
Cotchery once again found himself in the end zone on Sunday. The veteran wide receiver runs excellent routes and has shown himself to be the most physical of all the Steelers wide outs. He's not afraid to make the contested catch and has become a reliable safety valve for Roethlisberger, especially in the red zone.
Markus Wheaton, Wide Receiver
It was great to see Wheaton healthy and getting significant reps as the Steelers' third wide receiver on Sunday. With speed players like Brown and Emmanuel Sanders on the team, it's hard to recognize just how fast Wheaton is at times. Nonetheless, on Sunday, he flashed the skills that the Steelers are hoping will make him a starter in the near future.
