Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green set a franchise record Sunday with his fifth consecutive 100-yard game. His eight receptions for 151 yards  and a score against the Baltimore Ravens gave him 65 receptions for 1,013 yards and six touchdowns for the season.

The highlight of his day was the 51-yard hail mary reception he made to send the game into overtime, but even he admitted that was more luck than skill:

"“Luck,” Green said. “All luck. I was in the right spot at the right time; we talk about that a lot. And I was just looking for someone to tap the ball so I could catch it. I stood off to the side and watched. I was thinking about coming back closer to the ball, but I stayed right where I was and the ball found me. It would have been a great play had we won.”"
