Green just caught his third TD on a 49-yard bomb from Andrew Luck. He now has 6 receptions for 95 yards (15.8) on just 7 targets.

During the annual NFL Pro Bowl in Honolulu tonight, Bengals receiver A.J. Green set a franchise record with his third touchdown in two Pro Bowls. The previous record for most touchdowns all-time in the Pro Bowl was held by Chad Johnson (2) and T.J. Houshmandzadeh.

His first came on a 6-yard pass from Broncos QB and future hall-of-famer Peyton Manning during the first-quarter.

His second came in the fourth-quarter on a 4-yard jump-ball that Colts QB Andrew Luck put just enough air under for Green to go up and snatch it over Bears cornerback Tim Jennings.

While the Pro Bowl has become nothing more than a glorified game of flag-football, it’s still a nice honor for Green to capture in just his second year in the NFL, and there will undoubtedly be many more to come.
