I’ll have a #2, with Hawkins on the Side
A.J. Green is the best receiver in the NFL, but if the Bengals don’t get production from their other receivers he’ll face a number of double and even triple teams on Sunday against a Chiefs defense that has allowed 18 passing touchdowns the sixth-most in the NFL. Rookie Mohamed Sanu stepped into that #2 receiver very nicely last week as he recorded as career-high four receptions for 47 yards and his first NFL TD reception. Slot receiver Andrew Hawkins also accounted for
and the two will need to continue to become the supporting cast to the star that is A..J. Green.
Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles posted his third 100-yard rushing game last week against the vaunted Pittsburgh Steelers defense. It marked the 13th time he’s accomplished that in his career, and since 2010, the former Texas Longhorn is averaging 108.1 yards from scrimmage as he’s racked up 892 yards of total offense this year. He’s been to the Pro Bowl and has even been selected to the All-Pro team, and he is the Chiefs best player on either side of the ball. Containing him will be critical to victory today
