Shutdown Corner - NFL

Helping the Bengals to a 24-17 victory on Sunday, Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green(notes) went up to snag a throw from Andy Dalton(notes) that somehow left two Tennessee Titans down for the count.

I don't know for sure if both of either of the those guys were knocked unconscious -- It sure looked like Griffin was -- but neither player missed much time. Griffin came back one play later. McCourty only missed the rest of the series.

They both ended the day on the losing side, though, as the Titans blew a 17-7 halftime lead and were shut out in the second half.

As for the Bengals, say this out loud and see how it feels: "The top seed in the AFC, the Cincinnati Bengals." On Sunday after their won, and before the result of Pittsburgh/Baltimore late game, the Bengals are the best team in the AFC via a tiebreaker over the Steelers. Their next two are against Pittsburgh and Baltimore.
