WATCH: Antonio Brown channels inner David Tyree, makes helmet catch

Antonio Brown’s third touchdown on Thursday Night Football against the Tennessee Titans was a special one.

The Pittsburgh Steelers star hauled in a pass from Ben Roethlisberger. In doing so, he channeled former New York Giants receiver David Tyree and his famed helmet catch from Super Bowl XLII.

The helmet element is only part of what made this catch so brilliant.

Brown also moved the ball from his helmet to his chest, while going to the ground, and didn’t even come close to bobbling it.

It was just a fantastic catch from one of the NFL’s most explosive and simply, best players.
