A.J. Green surpassed 100 yards receiving against the Dolphins on Sunday. This the the 32nd time in his career that he has reached that mark. That means he now has the most 100-yard games of any Bengals player in the team’s history.

Chad Johnson was the previous record holder with 31 games of 100 yards receiving. Green has over 8,000 yards receiving and 82 touchdowns in his NFL career. He will undoubtedly end up at the top of several other major receiving records for the Bengals by the time it is all said and done.

Ochocinco responded to Green’s achievement with a simple goat emoji. Green will go down in Bengals history as the greatest of all time.

Green’s parents were at the game to see him reach the milestone.

Here are some other records to watch for the Bengals this season:

● Quarterback Andy Dalton also has 26,731 passing yards, 418 short of quarterback Boomer Esiason (27,149) for second place all-time. Quarterback Ken Anderson (32,838) is the Bengals’ all-time leader.

● Dalton also has 178 passing touchdowns, nine shy of Esiason (187) for second place all-time. Anderson (197) is the Bengals’ all-time leader.

● Green also has 62 career receiving TDs, one shy of wide receiver Carl Pickens (63) for second place all-time. Johnson (66) is the Bengals’ all-time leader.

● Green also has 62 career total TDs, two shy of Pickens and runningback James Brooks (64) for third place all-time. Fullback Pete Johnson (70) is the Bengals’ all-time leader.

● Defensive end Carlos Dunlap has 67.5 career sacks, 16 short of defensive end Eddie Edwards* (83.5) for the Bengals’ all-time lead.

● Defensive tackle Geno Atkins has 65 career sacks, 2.5 short of Dunlap for second place all-time. Edwards* (83.5) is the Bengals’ all-time leader. Atkins passed linebacker Reggie Williams (62.5) for third place all-time in Game 2 vs. Baltimore.

● Punter Kevin Huber has 709 career punts, 37 shy of P Lee Johnson (746) for the Bengals’ all-time lead. Huber passed punter Pat McInally (700) for second place all-time in Game two vs. Baltimore.

● Huber also has 31,999 punting yards, 197 shy of Johnson (32,196) for the Bengals’ all-time lead.

*NOTE: The NFL has counted sacks as official statistics since 1982. However, the Bengals have sack statistics compiled since 1976 and recognize those sacks recorded from ‘76-81 in its records. Thus, please note that, because the NFL has sacks statistics for all teams only since 1982, the Bengals’ sack statistics for players whose careers included seasons prior to ’82 will not be included in league information.
