A.J. Green Breaks Insane TD Drought With Week 11 Score
By Max Staley
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green can still look like an elite option when he's healthy. He's flashed that ability a few times this year, posting two games with at least 7 catches and 80 receiving yards.
But oddly enough, entering Week 11, none of Green's 31 receptions had gone for a touchdown this year. He rectified that with a TD grab on Sunday, and that finally broke an insanely long TD drought for the seven-time Pro Bowler.
That TD catch was actually Green's first score since Oct. 28 of 2018, which came against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 8 of that year. The Bengals' star wideout of course missed the entire 2019 campaign due to lingering injury issues.
Having played nine games this season, that was Green's first TD catch in his last 10 appearances. That's certainly atypical for Green, who has the second-most TD receptions in Bengals' history.
Now only 2 TDs behind Chad Johnson's franchise record (66), Green has a chance to break that mark this year if he can stay on the field.
