Bengals Expand Lead Following A.J. Green 18-Yard Touchdown Reception

They're mad. The Cincinnati Bengals offense is just mad. Following a fair catch by the Jacksonville Jaguars mascot, the Bengals establish the first possession post-BJGE fumble from their own 20-yard line. Andy Dalton flips the football on a check-down to BenJarvus Green-Ellis, clearly intending to drag a tackler or two. Clutching the football with both hands, Green-Ellis picks up 13 yards. On the following play Green-Ellis, again clutching onto the football with both hands, picks up one yard. See the point we're highlighting here?

On third and seven from their own 36-yard line and 1:08 remaining in the third quarter, Dalton finds the second-most (challenging for first) exciting receiver on the roster, who runs madly anywhere there's open field for a 31-yard gain. Gresham picked up a first down on consecutive receptions, on each side of the third quarter's conclusion.

With under 14 minutes remaining in the game, the Bengals have second and seven from Jacksonville's 18-yard line. Dalton takes the shotgun snap and arches the football towards the front corner of the endzone. A.J. Green quickly beats cornerback Rashead Mathis, scoring the 18-yard touchdown reception to take a 24-10 lead.

Green has six receptions for 117 yards receiving and a touchdown.
