He now owns six 100-yard receiving games on the season, which is also a franchise record. His current pace projects to 104 receptions for 1,621 yards this year. The franchise record for yards in a season is held by one Chad Johnson set in 2007. That ear, Johnson went on to set a career high in yardage (1,440 yards) with eight touchdowns and 93 catches and made the Pro Bowl for a fifth straight time.

Over the five-game run Green has gone one, the third-year man out of Georgia has caught 34 passes for 652 yards.

"“My number is going to come regardless no matter what,” Green said. “As long as we keep winning and come out numbers don’t matter to me. All that matters is coming out with wins.”"

Just win.Those were the same sentiments shared by linebacker Vinnie Rey, who had the best game of his career on Sunday. That is what makes this Bengals team so special.

These players don’t care about the numbers or the fame that comes with being an NFL player. They want to win games and do so for each other.
