The second opportunity will sting for some time. With 2:51 remaining and the Bengals facing a third-and-11 from Houston's 36-yard line, Green slipped past Texans cornerback Johnathan Joseph and away from safety Danieal Manning, late in coverage. If Dalton hits Green on the throw, the Bengals are an extra-point conversion away from a 20-19 lead. Instead, Dalton's ball was well overthrown.
"I have to do a better job of making sure A.J. get his catches," Dalton said, via The Cincinnati Enquirer.
Taking a step back, the Bengals now have gone 22 seasons without a playoff win. That's an NFL record you want no part of.
