AJ Green, still beasting (US Presswire)
This week, AJ Green got his house call out of the way early, hauling in a four-yard TD in the first quarter at Kansas City.
Check out the degree-of-difficulty on his latest score. That's just evil. Unfair. Green caught the ball with one hand (his left) over two defenders, then somehow got both feet in-bounds.
Sunday's score gives Green TD receptions in nine straight games, which puts him just one shy of Carl Pickens' franchise record (1994-95) and four short of Jerry Rice's all-time mark (1986-87).* The Bengals face Oakland next week, so that's basically a layup. After the match-up with the Raiders, AJ will terrorize San Diego, Dallas, Philly and Pittsburgh. Eventually this TD streak will end, but probably not 'til December.
*Just for kicks, have a look at Rice's 1987 game log. The man found the end zone in every regular season game, which is just silly.
At halftime in KC, Green had three catches for 41 yards on six targets. If you're an AJ investor, congrats. Feel free to discuss your genius-ness in comments.
How many players would you actually deal him for right now, one-for-one? I'm assuming it's a short list, lacking receivers.
