The Ex­tra Point

Stamford Advocate (Sunday) - - Nfl -

An­to­nio Brown is al­ways on the re­ceiv­ing end of some­thing.

Passes from Ben Roeth­lis­berger.

Crit­i­cism for off-the-field is­sues.

As well as ac­claim for be­ing the top wide­out in the league.

Brown was the near-unan­i­mous choice as the NFL’s top wide re­ceiver by a panel of 10 foot­ball writ­ers for The As­so­ci­ated Press. The All-Pro re­ceived nine first-place votes in bal­lot­ing re­leased Fri­day.

Brown was also last year’s top choice.

“Brown might not be off to an eye-pop­ping start with 29 catches for 272 yards and three touch­downs, but he’s still well on pace for over 100 catches and 1,000 yards for the sixth straight year,” said New York-based AP Foot­ball Writer Den­nis Waszak Jr. “He’s con­sis­tently dom­i­nant — on the field and in the end zone with his touch­down cel­e­bra­tions.”

At­lanta’s Julio Jones fin­ished sec­ond over­all. He re­ceived the re­main­ing first-place vote. Jones has 29 re­cep­tions for 502 yards, but zero TDs as the Fal­cons have stag­gered to a 1-3 start.
