The Pittsburgh Steelers are having quite an interesting season, they are 6-5 and second in the AFC North while their big names are having big seasons.

Runningback Le'Veon Bell has the 6th most scrimmage yards in the league this season despite missing the first three games and star wide receiver Antonio Brown is tied for most touchdown catches in 2016.

A big issue?

While Brown is having a great year, racking up an phenomenal 82 catches for 998 yards and 10 touchdowns, he has also found his fair share of trouble.

Brown has been penalised three times this season for his celebrations after scoring touchdowns and now the Steelers have had enough of it.

After his most recent penalty in Thursday's game against the Indianapolis Colts, his quarterback has now spoken out on the issue.

The Steelers have struggled at times this season and in games where every yard counts, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger realises that Brown's dances need to be stamped out.

"He knows, we all know, Coach [Mike] Tomlin brought it up yesterday, that is a huge penalty and we can't do that," - Roethlisberger on Brown's unnecessary penalties

If it is an issue that head coach Mike Tomlin has now become involved in, clearly Brown should heed the warning of his quarterback.

Other than simply adding to the team's penalty totals, Roethlisberger has highlighted the biggest issue with Brown's touchdown dances.

"We put our kick coverage team in a bad situation and we can't have that, and AB knows that."
