 Over the past few seasons www.cincinnatibengalsshop.com , people have seemed to forget about A.J. Green when talking about the best receivers in the NFL. It is a little understandable, as his numbers haven’t been up to snuff the past two seasons. That isn’t really on Green, though, as the Bengals as a whole have struggled on offense the past two seasons.Green had a great time reintroducing himself against the Ravens on Thursday Night Football. He scored three touchdown in the first half against Baltimore. He did that on just three catches, the biggest of which was on third and two. Green broke a tackle and ran 32 yards for what was his second score of the game.This was Green’s first three-touchdown game in the NFL, which is slightly surprising given his talent level. It is great to add that to the already strong resume that Green is building. The Ravens also seem to be Green’s favorite opponent, as he has now scored nine touchdowns against Baltimore over his career.This was also a huge difference in results from last season at this point. Following the Bengals Week 2 loss against the Texans, Green was vocal about a lack of opportunities for Cincinnati’s play makers. The team had failed to score a touchdown after two games, and the Bengals’ offensive coordinator Ken Zampese was fired and replaced with current offensive coordinator Bill Lazor. This year, Green snagged three in one quarter. It is easy to see the difference.This was undoubtedly Green’s best prime time performance, which gets him some national respect from people who wouldn’t normally get to see him. Too often, we hear names like Antonio Brown Cincinnati Bengals T-Shirt , Julio Jones, Odell Beckham Jr. tossed out there as the best receivers in the NFL. Those guys are well deserving, but too often people forget about Green. This performance should help get his name more involved in those discussions. Even if Green is far to humble to say it himself.“It’s a long season," Green told Jeremy Rauch of Fox19. "This is a team that’s going to stay quiet, not going to toot our horns, just going to keep playing.”Green finished the game with five catches for 69 yards and three touchdowns. It is a performance that we should see included in any of Green’s highlight reels from here on out.AFC North standings: Bengals remain on top of a competitive division Around these parts, we’ve said that the Bengals finishing the month of September with a 3-1 record would be gigantic in their potential playoff chances. Though it was by the skin of their teeth, Cincinnati pulled off this feat with a comeback win against the Falcons in Atlanta. With the win, the Bengals continue to sit atop of the AFC North, though it’s by a pretty thin margin. Each of the four teams have notched at least one win so far in the first month. Meanwhile, the Cleveland Browns continue to suffer both bad luck and their stepping on their own toes. They faced the Oakland Raiders on Sunday afternoon, only to lose 45-42 in the last seconds of the contest. At one point Cincinnati Bengals Hats , the Browns had a 17-7 lead on the road, but that evaporated in a shootout to give Jon Gruden his first win in his second stint with Oakland. There were two controversial calls at the end of the game in which the Browns could/should/would have won the game, but the powers-that-be decided otherwise. After tying the Steelers in Week 1 and narrowly losing to the Saints, the Browns are a very misleading 1-2-1 right now. Since the “old” Browns became the Baltimore Ravens, a major rivalry has ensued between the upstart franchise and the Pittsburgh Steelers. Since 1996, the Ravens have been to two Super Bowls and won them both, while the Steelers have been to three and won two in the span. These head-to-head clashes between the squads are often best-described as bloodbaths, and the Week 4 Sunday Night Football matchup was no different. Baltimore got off to a quick 14-0 lead over Pittsburgh at home, but that soon dissipated. The Steelers rallied back, thanks to a huge fumble near the goal line by Alex Collins. Ben Roethlisberger chipped away at the lead with two first half drives that led to field goals, but then also threw a 26-yard touchdown pass to Antonio Brown. A subsequent two-point conversion had the game tied at halftime. The second half was, for most intents and purposes Cincinnati Bengals Hoodie , pretty ugly. It essentially became the Justin Tucker show, as he hit four field goals in the second half. Baltimore came out of Heinz Field victorious, beating the Steelers, 26-14. Both teams have a lot of questions to answer, but the Ravens are biting at the Bengals’ heels for first place, as Cincinnati has the tie-breaker over Baltimore because of the Week 2 outcome. Here’s a look at the AFC North standings after Week 4:Cincinnati Bengals 3-1: 1-0 in division, 2-0 in conferenceBaltimore Ravens: 3-1: 1-1 in division, 3-1 in conferenceCleveland Browns: 1-2-1: 0-0-1 in division, 1-1-1 in conferencePittsburgh Steelers: 1-2-1: 0-1-1 in division, 1-1-1 in conference
