[Photos: Best action from NFL Week 6]
Green struck first. He was aligned all alone on the offensive right side and ran a simple "go" route, with Leodis McKelvin singled up in man coverage. Advantage: Green. He had a step on McKelvin but still had to high-point the ball and pirouette in the air to make the fantastic catch for the early score.
But did Bernard, the rookie, one-up Green?
With quarterback Andy Dalton pressured, he had to step up in the pocket amid pressure and then flipped it, Brett Favre-style (we promise never to compare Dalton to Favre ever again), to Bernard. After catching it, he started putting on the moves: first, an ankle-breaker on Kiko Alonso, then Bernard dragged a defender into the end zone for the side-winding score.
So, you be the judge: Which one was better?- - -
