Watch Antonio Brown catch passes while wearing 50-year-old goggles over helmet

Watch Antonio Brown catch passes while wearing 50-year-old goggles over helmet

Raiders wide receiver Antonio Brown doesn't want to wear new NFL-approved helmets because he believes they restrict his vision when trying to catch a football.

Well, we have a solution.

And it's actually already been tested and approved by Brown himself.

During the 2018 season, while Brown still was on the Pittsburgh Steelers, he made a cameo during an episode of "Peyton's Places" with former NFL quarterback Peyton Manning and Hall of Fame receiver Raymond Berry.

In the segment, Manning and Brown conducted drills while Berry watched. The last drill involved custom goggles that Berry used to wear over his helmet in the 1960a to combat the sun during daytime football games.

Manning strapped the goggles to Brown's Steelers helmet -- the model the receiver has worn his entire career -- and threw a few easy passes to him.

"I don't know how they feel, but they look fantastic," Manning said to Brown as he threw a pass.

"They look cool, huh?" Brown responded.

Brown caught all four passes thrown to him while wearing the goggles.

Manning said the segment was filmed in the middle of the 2018 season, but the video is just surfacing now as episodes are released by ESPN.

It's relevant considering that Brown reportedly is threatening to quit playing football because he wants to keep using his current helmet.

Brown claims he can't see properly with the new helmets. But it appears he was able to see just fine while wearing goggles that are at least 50 years old.

Raiders-Bengals odds, predictions: Betting lines, picks for NFL Week 11 game

The Raiders head into their Week 11 matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals with a leg up. The team will be going up against the worst run defense in the league.

The Bengals give up 173.0 yards per game and have yet to win a matchup this season. This win is pretty much in the cards for the Silver and Black. Plus, this is a huge opportunity for Josh Jacobs (and his fantasy owners) to capitalize on his running game. 

On the other side, Bengals RB Joe Mixon is 14th in the NFL with 131 carries this seasons.

If you're a betting person, the Raiders are favored in the upcoming matchup according to Sportsline
