Miami Dolphins cornerback Brent Grimes and Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown have been among the most productive players at their positions this year. Yet, few talk about this pair on a national level.
Part of the issue is playing on mediocre teams. The Dolphins and Steelers have a combined record of 11-13. Another part is neither seeks media attention the way some other top cornerbacks and receivers do.
But that shouldn’t take away from Sunday’s quality matchup of talented players. Grimes has been one of the most consistent corners in the AFC, and Brown is leading the NFL with 85 receptions entering Week 14.
“He’s a great player,” Grimes said of the matchup with Brown. “They try to get him the ball in a variety of ways, whether it be a screen or just get him the ball. Once he gets the ball in his hands, he presents a lot of problems because he is [also] a punt returner. He can make a lot of people miss and break some tackles.”
