Steelers' Brown soaring despite quarterback shuffle

PITTSBURGH (AP) Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown is earning raves for his expertly executed flip after scoring a touchdown against Cleveland last week.

Olympic gymnastics champion Mary Lou Retton called it a perfect 10, though Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger urged his All-Pro to play it a little safer next time.

Brown says having fun is part of the game and touchdowns are hard to come by. He endured a five-game scoring drought earlier this season that coincided with Roethlisberger being sidelined by a sprained left knee. He's back on track with Roethlisberger back under center. Brown leads the NFL in yards receiving and his 27 receptions in his last two games are the fourth-highest total in league history.

The Steelers (6-4) are off this week and travel to Seattle on Nov. 29.
