Bengals WR A.J. Green already has eight catches for 123 yards and a touchdown in the first half against the Dolphins.

Dalton throwing to Green more than half the time. Miami no answers. Could this be the night Flipper Anderson's 336 rec yards broken?

Like if you told me next week the Dolphins were going to start Christian Okoye and bring Trung Canidate off the bench I'd believe you

Dolphins CB Tony Lippett, who replaced Byron Maxwell, now has two third-down pass defenses in the first half against the Bengals.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

The Bengals take a 10-7 lead on Andy Dalton's TD pass to A.J. Green. A quick "smoke" route. When Dalton reads off-man coverage, he gets the ball out immediately to Green. That forces the CB in coverage to make a tackle in space. A matchup advantage for the Bengals with Green in the open field.

Last week, A.J. Green said the offense started with him and he needed to set the tone. He's doing so tonight. The drive started after Green went up over Xavien Howard and wrestled the ball away from him for a 51-yard gain. It ended with Green running cleanly into the end zone. Bengals are up 10-7.

Touchdown Bengals! That drive was all A.J. Green as he totals 3 catches for 77 yards and a TD to put Cincy up, 10-7.

Dolphins CB Tony Lippett with the missed tackle on Bengals WR A.J. Green leads to a TD. Cincy leads, 10-7. Miami's corners aren't doing a good job on Green early.


TOUCHDOWN BENGALS! AJ Green makes a man miss and gets in for the score. Cincy leads Miami, 10-7.

That was Andy Dalton's first touchdown pass inside the red zone in 11 trips this season

I like Dolphins rookie CB Xavein Howard. I think he has a solid future ahead. But leaving him one-on-one already on Bengals WR A.J. Green is not the best idea.

Eric Karabell ESPN Senior Writer 

A.J. Green with a great catch deep downfield against the Miami left creamsicle. Should be huge game for Green. No surprise.

Bill Barnwell @billbarnwell

Are the Dolphins trying to prove Xavien Howard's worth $15 million per year by having him man up across the field on A.J. Green? Help him.

Dan Graziano ESPN Staff Writer 

Not much more CB Xavier Howard could do there. Coverage was good, and he was whacking at AJ Green's arms the way they teach CBs to play the bigger WRs. Green just too good.
