Heath Miller Digest Player of the Week
In light of an upsetting loss yesterday versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers..Heath Miller
is the Steelers DigestPlayer of the Week for his performance in the team’s 27-24 loss to Tampa Bay at Heinz Field.
His 10 catches on the afternoon represented a career-high, and the 85 receiving yards those receptions netted allowed him to pass Hall of Fame receiver Lynn Swann for fourth place on the franchise’s all-time list in that category. He also caught a touchdown pass that was nullified by offsetting penalties only to come back three plays later to catch another one that gave the Steelers a 24-17 lead late in the third quarter.
Also considered were Le’Veon Bell, who had 63 yards rushing and another 46 on receptions for 107 yards from scrimmage; Antonio Brown
, who caught seven passes for 131 yards and two touchdowns, while also completing one pass for 17 yards; Ben Roethlisberger
, who completed 29-of-40 for 314 yards, with three touchdowns, no interceptions, and a rating of 120.2; and Lawrence Timmons
, who led the team with 10 tackles.
I think I speak for all of Steelers Nation when I say..”CONGRATULATIONS #83″!
