AB for MVP? Steelers WR Brown on historic run

PITTSBURGH (AP) Darrius Heyward-Bey wants to get something out of the way about the latest addition to Antonio Brown's rapidly expanding highlight reel. It wasn't a toe tap. It was a toe drag.

The difference isn't semantic. It's vital. And one of the many reasons Heyward-Bey believes his Pittsburgh Steelers teammate is separating himself from every other wide receiver in the NFL.

If Brown tried to tap his feet while coming down with a 23-yard pass from Ben Roethlisberger that set up teammate Chris Boswell's winning field goal on the final play last Sunday against Green Bay, Brown would have been out of bounds. Brown knows this because he preaches it every day in practice. So Brown lifted his right foot off the ground and had it scrape the grass as he planted his left foot on the very edge of the playing field.
