A.J. Green could join Jerry Rice and Elroy "Crazylegs" Hirsch on Sunday as the only receivers in history to catch a touchdown in 10 straight games in a single season.
With a touchdown reception Sunday against the Oakland Raiders, Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green would become one of only three players in history to catch a touchdown in 10 straight games in a regular season, joining Jerry Rice and Elroy "Crazylegs" Hirsch.
Green began the 2012 season with five receptions for 70 yards and no touchdowns in a loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Since then, he has caught a touchdown is each game this season.
In his short time with the Bengals, Green has proved to be a monster at the wideout position. Not yet through two full NFL seasons, Green has 17 touchdowns and is only 32 yards away from 2,000 career receiving yards. He was drafted No. 4 overall in the 2011 NFL Draft.
Green would join Jerry Rice's company with a touchdown Sunday against Oakland, but he's still a few games out of reach of Rice's record. Including the final game of the 1986 season and his first 12 games of the 1987 season, Rice caught a touchdown pass in 13 straight contests.
