Bengals best in division at slowing Antonio Brown

Apparently the Bengals were the only AFC North team to temper Steelers star receiver in Antonio Brown, according to Pro Football Focus.

The Bengals held Brown to 1.28 yards per route run, much better marks than the Browns (2.11) and Ravens (2.26).

Brown is considered among, if not the, best receivers in the league. If any of those three teams hopes to dethrone Pittsburgh atop the North, it will have to slow down Brown. That stat may appear minor, but it adds a small bit of hope to the Bengals’ bid to reclaim the North.
