A.J. Green was Playing an Inspired Game

We know that A.J. Green is the best receiver the Bengals have. In week two against the Steelers, it looked like he lost his identity. In week four, not only was he back, but he looked like he had something to prove.

A.J. Green had his second 175+ game with one touchdown. In fact, the Bengals are now 2-0 when Green gets a touchdown. It is not only something we should see every week from the Bengals top receiver, but something we are seeing, that he expects out of himself.

His stats put him 60 yards ahead of Marvin Jones, who will play on Sunday, but more importantly 150 yards ahead of Antonio Brown, who has been argued as the best receiver in football. Green is one of the top wide receivers in the league and the rest of the NFL got a glimpse of why.

Next week, the Cincinnati Bengals head to Dallas to take on the Cowboys. The Cowboys defense is ranked 23rd against the pass so I like the match up potential. Can he carry himself into next week against Dallas and have a repeat performance?
