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