2012 Pro Bowl: A. J. Green Scores A Touchdown For AFC, Nearly Has Two

Former Georgia Bulldogs and current rookie wide receiver for the Cincinnati Bengals A.J. Green scored a touchdown with his first reception in the 2012 Pro Bowl. Green caught a 34-yard touchdown pass from Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. That touchdown for the AFC team was their first of the game and cut into the NFC's lead 14-7.

Green ended up having another reception for nine yards which nearly ended up being his second touchdown. On that reception Green made a great effort to try to get to the endzone, but after rolling over a defender and stretching his arm out to the one Green lost control of the ball in the endzone and the NFC's Earl Thomas.

So far on the day Green has been targeted four times, two receptions for 44 yards and one touchdown.
