Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown (Offensive) and kicker Chris Boswell (Special Teams) were each named AFC Player of the Month for December/January, it was announced today.

Brown earned his second consecutive AFC Offensive Player of the Month award after being named the AFC’s top player in November. He led the NFL in December/January in receptions (51), receiving yards (642) and receptions for first downs (34), while recording five touchdown catches. Brown recorded at least 100 yards in three-of-five games during that span, including two 180-yard games. He added two multi-touchdown games, Week 13 vs. Indianapolis and Week 15 vs. Denver.

In addition, Brown’s 642 scrimmage yards were tops among AFC players and second in the NFL. He was the only player in the league to record 50 or more receptions, nine more than any other player.

This marks the first time Boswell has earned AFC Special Teams player of the Month honors. He led all NFL kickers in field goals made (12) and points in December/January. Boswell was the only player to total 50 or more points in that span, seven more than any other kicker. He totaled a single-game career-high 15 points in the team’s Week 14 victory at Cincinnati. Boswell also took home AFC Special Teams Player of the Week honors in Week 6 of the 2015 season.
