The star receiver caught six passes for 155 yards and a touchdown as he rivaled Megatron’s numbers all afternoon. There’s not much more you can ask of Green than that. It was good enough for his second best game of the year, and he was connecting with Dalton throughout the day.
The stats only show that he had 4 catches for 57 yards and a touchdown. Those numbers alone are very solid. However, three of the catches were key first downs, and the fourth was an impressive diving catch towards the back of the end zone for his touchdown. He’s gradually evolving into a true No. 2 receiver behind Green.
