Even if A.J. Green is closely covered, Andy Dalton has no hesitation about throwing his way and letting him try to make a spectacular catch.
The Cincinnati Bengals' rookie combination is fast becoming one of the NFL's best. They've connected for five touchdowns, the fourth-highest total through nine games for any NFL rookie duo since 1970.
They may not get a chance to add to it this weekend in Baltimore. Green hyperextended his right knee while making a 36-yard touchdown catch Sunday against Pittsburgh and sat out the second half. He was limping slightly on Wednesday and said it'll probably be a game-time decision whether he plays against the Ravens.
Both teams are 6-3. The winner moves into a first-place tie with Pittsburgh (7-3) in the AFC North.
