Steelers notebook: Antonio Brown continues impressive play

It didn't seem to matter to Antonio Brown that the Steelers were already playing without wide receivers Emmanuel Sanders and Jerricho Cotchery . He made enough dazzling plays to make up for both of them.

As he has since the first day of training camp, Brown was nothing short of sensational in Saturday night's 34-16 preseason victory against the Atlanta Falcons, catching touchdown passes of 77 and 44 yards and also returning the opening kickoff 51 yards to set up a score.

Brown's first touchdown was a deftly executed slant in which Ben Roethlisberger's pass sailed just over the reach of diving cornerback Brent Grimes , Brown caught the ball at his own 45 and outraced safety Thomas DeCoud to the end zone.

The only thing Brown did wrong was get an unsportsmanlike penalty for taunting when he pointed at DeCoud as he pranced into the end zone. Brown celebrated the touchdown by leaping into the stands and hanging sideways on a guard rail as fans patted him on his helmet.

Brown is a beast this year. He has to watch the showboating though. This isn't Dallas. Celebrate all you want after we win #7.
