Little Big Man; Steelers receiver Antonio Brown joining NFL elite

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown is on a record-setting pace for his team's high-powered offense.

Halfway through the 2014 season, Brown is on track to set new club marks for receptions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns in a single season. Brown has also caught at least five passes for 50 yards in an NFL record 24 straight games heading into Sunday night's showdown with Baltimore.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin compares Brown to Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt, saying opponents know what Brown is going to try and do each week and yet he still finds a way to be successful.

Brown says he's simply focused on getting better and helping lead a young receiving group that is maturing quickly.
