A. J. Green WR CIN Aug 02 '787 Comments
A.J. Green managed just one reception in the Bengals' Week 7 loss to Pittsburgh -- but made it count for an eight-yard touchdown.
Struggling to this point in the year, Steelers RCB Ike Taylor came up with his best game of the season. Taylor held Green catch-less until midway through the second quarter, when he got inside position for an eight-yard touchdown on a slant route. The score was Green's seventh through seven games. Green was targeted again in the third quarter in the end zone, but Taylor and LCB Keenan Lewis had double coverage, and Lewis batted it away. Ultimately, Green won this battle and it will happen again once more before the season is up. Green remains the highest scoring wideout in all of fantasy football entering a Week 8 bye.
