Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell earned two more leaguewide recognitions this week. Unfortunately for Bell, it will likely be his last until next season.
Both Steelers were named to Pro Football Focus' midseason All-Pro team, joining the likes of Carson Palmer and Rob Gronkowski. Brown is coming off the best statistical game of his career, a 17-catch, 284-yard performance against the Raiders. PFF also recognized Brown as its offensive player of the first half after his monster game, beating out Palmer and Gronkowski for the honor. Brown has the highest score (98.1) of any receiver in the league, just ahead of Atlanta's Julio Jones (96.9). Brown, who had a bit of a cold spell when Michael Vick replaced the injured Ben Roethlisberger for four games, has 69 catches for 1,002 yards and three touchdowns in nine games this season.
Bell received a 94.0 grade from the advanced analytics site, well ahead of Devonta Freeman's 86.8. Bell's season-ending knee injury will likely keep him off the charts for end of season honors. The third-year back will finish the year with 556 yards and three scores on 113 carries, while also adding 24 receptions and 136 yards through the air.
