A.J. Green’s 1-handed catch in scrum shows off his jug­gling

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - SPORTS - By Joe Kay

A.J. Green took up jug­gling when he was in grade school, learn­ing how to toss-and-catch all sorts of things without drop­ping them. It was fun and de­vel­oped his co­or­di­na­tion.

Now, any­thing near his fin­ger­tips seems to stick.

The Ben­gals re­ceiver pulled off one of the most amaz­ing plays of the sea­son dur­ing a 31-17 win over the Browns on Sun­day.

In the mid­dle of a scrum in the end zone, he jumped, tipped a des­per­a­tion pass to him­self, and pulled it in with one hand while be­ing pulled down.

His 48-yard touch­down on the last play of the first half put the Ben­gals (3-4) in con­trol and left ev­ery­one amazed.

No mat­ter how many times they watched the play again on video, his team­mates couldn’t help but marvel.

“If it’s not the play of the year, there has to be one that’s re­ally, re­ally good,” said Andy Dal­ton, who heaved the ball into the end zone so Green could work his magic.

“For how he tipped it, and then it went off some­one else, and then he goes and gets it with one hand — it just goes to show how good his hands are.”

He put on a real show.
