BREAKING: Antonio Brown, DeAngelo Williams ruled ‘out’ for Denver game

The Pittsburgh Steelers have received the news nobody wanted to hear that Antonio Brown will be inactive against the number 1 seed Denver Broncos, in Denver, due to a concussion. https://twitter.com/steelers/status/688003827312779265   Brown suffered the concussion on the now infamous late hit by Vontaze Burfict late in the 4th quarter last week. Though the play was a huge reason why the Steelers are in this game against the Broncos, I think the Steelers would’ve preferred the hit didn’t happen and they found another way to win if it meant they had Brown available on Saturday. When these two teams matched up in Week 15 and the Steelers upset the Broncos in a 34-27 comeback win. A large reason for this is the immense game Antonio Brown had. The Broncos have one of the best/the best secondary in the NFL and Brown caught 16 passes for 187 yards and 2 touchdowns, beating both Talib and Harris time-and-time again. Luckily for the Steelers they have two other good receivers but it will be incredibly difficult to replave Brown’s production. This is a tough break for the Steelers. ***UPDATE*** Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse for the Steelers, the team have announced that they will again be without starting running back DeAngelo Williams this weekend. https://twitter.com/AdamSchefter/status/688053737370333186 While the team were without Williams in their victory over the Bengals, Antonio Brown’s presence helped to keep the defense honest. Now, not only can the Broncos can afford to key in on the run game more heavily, but the Steelers will find that run game even harder to get going now.
