Steelers' Antonio Brown pulls off amazing helmet catch in win vs Titans

Antonio Brown had a monster night for the Pittsburgh Steelers in their Thursday Night Football win against the Tennessee Titans which included a Catch of the Year candidate.

The Steelers came out 40-17 winners against the Titans last night at Heinz Field, with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and wide receiver Brown having one of their best performances of the season so far.

Big Ben completed 30-of-45 passes for 299 yards, four touchdowns, and zero interceptions, while Brown caught 10-of-13 targets for 144 yards and three touchdowns in Pittsburgh's Week 11 win over Tennessee.

The catch of the night, and arguably the best catch you will see all year, has to go to the 29-year-old wideout who, after already catching two touchdowns on the night, caught a third in the fourth quarter by trapping the ball on his helmet near the back of the endzone.

As you can see in the video further down below, in true David Tyree fashion, Brown trapped the ball on his helmet with his hand before bringing it under control as he fell to the turf in order to be awarded the touchdown on a fantastic 10-yard play in the fourth quarter.

This completed a hat-trick of touchdowns in epic fashion for Brown, one that a man of his style will certainly be proud of.

This catch is, of course, reminiscent of the catch which former New York Giants wide receiver David Tyree made in his team's game-winning drive in Super Bowl XLII against the New England Patriots in the 2007 season.

Brown's catch is not as good as Tyree's, especially when you take into account the occasion and the stakes which were on the line in both situations, but it's certainly up there as one of the best helmet catches in the history of the NFL and is definitely a worthy contender for Catch of the Season.

Brown and the Steelers will look to continue their winning ways and extend their winning streak to six when they play against the Green Bay Packers next week.
