A.J. Green makes Chris Houston look silly with 82-yard TD

Chris Houston is the Lions’ best cornerback, but he’s no match for Cincinnati’s A.J. Green.

Houston was badly beaten by a Green double-move, biting on the fake and watching helplessly as Green sprinted past him to get wide open deep in the Lions’ secondary. Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton underthrew the pass and Green had to slow down for it, but Green was so far ahead of Houston and everyone else on the Lions’ defense that he still got to the end zone with no trouble.

The cornerback position is a major concern for the Lions, and in Green Detroit is playing perhaps the best wide receiver they could play, outside matching up with Calvin Johnson in practice. The Lions are going to have to come up with something better against Green.

    AJ Green has the ability to make anybody look silly because he is such a special WR!

  8. nolaisadump says: Oct 20, 2013 2:17 PM do realize, Calvin Johnson is too good to practice. He just shows up for the games. He and a few select guys are deemed to important to risk hurting in practice. His defensive teamates will never line up against him.

    AJ succeeds despite Andy Dalton. He should have had 3 TDs if weren’t for Daltons noodle arm. Dalton is a turd.
