Jets Vs. Steelers Reactions: Antonio Brown, Mike Wallace Among Key Performers

In the Pittsburgh Steelers 27-10 win over the New York Jets on Sunday at Heinz Field, many players deserve a share of the success.

Two of those men are wide receivers Mike Wallace and Antonio Brown, who both can up huge in the home-opening victory. As pointed out by Neal Coolong over at Behind The Steel Curtain, the duo was a key factor:

Wallace did an excellent job of somehow getting his heel to the last centimeter of green before the sideline in the end zone, completing a 37-yard touchdown catch. It was his second touchdown catch of the season, and also his long reception.

Steelers' defenders have been flagged for hitting receivers a lot less defenseless than Brown was on two occasions when he was gooned by Jets safety LaRon Landry. It was obvious those hits fed Brown's energy, as he grabbed seven passes on 10 targets.

With Darrelle Revis missing the game because of a concussion suffered in Week 1, Ben Roethlisberger and co. took full advantage en route to evening their record at 1-1.
