Ravens WR Marquise Brown tweets frustration with limited targets after loss to Steelers

Ravens wide receiver Marquise Brown took to Twitter to voice his frustration after being targeted just twice in a 28-24 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in a critical AFC North matchup.

“What’s the point of having souljas when you never use them (Never!!)” Brown tweeted to his 156,000 followers less than an hour after the Ravens' second loss of the season. The post has since been deleted.

Brown, who has not made available to the media to answer questions after the game, had just one catch, for a 3-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter, Sunday, his fewest receptions since a 31-15 win over the Cleveland Browns on Dec. 22, 2019. He had four catches for 57 yards in a Week 6 win over the Philadelphia Eagles and entered Sunday’s game with a team-leading 26 catches for 376 yards and one touchdown. His 42 targets entering Sunday led tight end Mark Andrews (33) for most on the team.

The Ravens outgained the Steelers 457-221 behind the strength of their running game, which totaled 265 yards on 5.6 yards per carry. Quarterback Lamar Jackson was 13-for-28 passing for 208 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. Willie Snead IV led the Ravens with five catches for 106 yards on a team-high seven targets. Andrews had three catches for 32 yards on six targets, and receiver Miles Boykin had two catches for 20 yards on three targets.
