Nov. 17 (UPI) -- It's hard to be surprised anymore when Antonio Brown makes a ridiculous catch, but the Pittsburgh Steelers star pulled off a stunning helmet grab Thursday that you have to see.

Brown, who had three touchdowns in the Steelers' 40-17 win against the Tennessee Titans, pulled off his most sensational catch in the fourth quarter.

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger stepped back in the pocket on a 2nd and 5 from the 10-yard-line on the play. Roethlisberger quickly scanned the Titans defense, but knew where he was going the entire time. He identified Brown in single coverage and tossed the football over his head and toward the end zone.

Brown adjusted his body and fended off Titans rookie Adoree Jackson. The Steelers star turned his body toward the sideline before lifting his left arm and cradling the football against his helmet. Brown felt to the ground and maintained control of the football for a score, putting the Steelers on top 36-17.

The wide receiver then celebrated with teammates Le'Veon Bell and a bowing JuJu Smith-Schuster.

"Man it was just in the moment," Brown told reporters after the game. "Grateful for that catch. Ben put it on the outside shoulder. I was able to adjust and I was grateful I came down with that one."

Brown now has a league-high 70 catches for a league-leading 1,026 yards and six scores on the season. He had 10 catches for 144 yards and three scores on Thursday night at Heinz Field.
