WR Antonio Brown showed us some antics in Week 4 with the flipping over of the gatorade cooler because he was mad that Big Ben did not throw to him on what appeared to be an easy 64 yard touchdown had he been targeted. This isn’t the first time he’s lost his cool.
The Steelers just about beat the Browns and lost to the Bears this NFL betting season. Ben Roethlisberger has his lowest per yard attempt rate since 2009 and is not hitting throws over 10 yards.
