Gary Kubiak: A.J. Green Is 'Best Rookie WR In The NFL'

While game-planning for the Cincinnati Bengals defensively, one player stood out for the Houston Texans coaching staff -- Cincinnati rookie WR AJ Green:

"They’re comfortable regardless of what position you have on [Green] just to put the ball up, and we found that out. Because [Texans CB Johnathan Joseph] was in great position on him many times, and they still put it up, and he came down with the ball," Kubiak said. "It’s something we’ve been concentrating on this week, making sure we finish plays, making sure we go to the ball and finish, so that will be a big key. I know they’ll try to get him the ball. I mean, I know I would."

The Bengals took the 6'4 210 WR from Georgia with the No. 4 pick, and he has not disappointed as a rookie, catching 65 balls for 1,037 yards and 7 TD's, including 5 catches for 59 yards in Cincinnati's 20-19 loss to Houston in Week 13.

The Texans will likely keep their star CB, Johnathan Joseph, on Green in a match-up of two AFC Pro Bowlers that should be worth the price of admission.
