Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan believes A.J. Green is the best wide receiver in the AFC.
Ahead of Sunday’s match-up between the Bills and the Bengals, Bills head coach Rex Ryan took time during his press conference to compliment Cincinnati’s offense and proclaim wide receiver A.J. Green as the best wide receiver in the AFC.
“I think when you look at the wide outs, all three of the wide outs are really good,” Ryan told reporters on Wednesday. “From [Mohamed] Sanu, to 82 [Marvin Jones] and then you got obviously A.J. Green, who’s probably the best receiver in the AFC.”
Among other AFC receivers, Green is ranked third in receiving yards with 495 yards, and eighth in receptions with 31 catches. DeAndre Hopkins of the Houston Texans tops both categories with his 42 receptions and 578 yards.
Cornerback Ronald Darby will be assigned to cover Green for the Bills.
The Bengals look to continue their undefeated streak against the Bills (3–2) on Sunday at 1 p.m. ET in Buffalo’s Ralph Wilson Stadium.
