WATCH: Antonio Brown lights up the Chargers in the first half

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Star wide receiver Antonio Brown took it upon himself to make sure the Pittsburgh Steelers rebounded after last week’s loss to the Denver Broncos.

He absolutely dominated the Los Angeles Chargers’ defense in the first half of Sunday Night Football, catching six passes for 117 yards and a touchdown on seven targets.

This came after Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger called Brown out following last week’s loss. And it’s rather clear that the one of the game’s most-electric receivers took his frustration out on an elite-level Chargers defense.

With the game scoreless early in the first quarter, Brown caught this 46-yard bomb from Big Ben. It ultimately set up a one-yard touchdown run from James Conner.

Then, with his Steelers up 16-7 late in the second quarter, Brown beat a double team to score on this 28-yard pass from Roethlisberger.

It’s this type of domination from the combination of Roethlisberger and Brown that the Steelers have been missing for pretty much the entire season.

But as we saw in the first half of Sunday night’s game, the two can make a mockery of opposing defenses in the beat of a heart.
