WATCH: A.J. Green breaks Atlanta’s heart on game-winning TD

Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Falcons held A.J. Green quiet for much of Sunday’s game, but the Cincinnati Bengals star wide receiver made the game-winning touchdown to break Atlanta’s hearts.

On second down with only seconds remaining in the game and Cincinnati trailing, Green escaped from coverage to make a sliding catch in the end zone for the go-ahead touchdown.

It’s moments like these that help define greatness in a wide receiver. Green faced double coverage for most of the day but came through in the final moment to deliver a win for the Bengals.

Cincinnati now sits with a surprising 3-1 record on the season and appears ready to rock in a soft matchup in Week 5 against the Miami Dolphins.
