Nov 10, 2013; Baltimore, MD, USA; Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green (18) celebrates after catching a hail mary touchdown pass to tie the game as time expires against the Baltimore Ravens at M

AJ Green says Hail Mary would have been a great play if we won

The Cincinnati Bengals had one shot to tie the game and force over time. They were on the wrong side of the 50-yard line as well. Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton fired up a Hail Mary pass towards a cluster of players on the goal line and it seemed to be uncatchable and headed towards the grown.

Ravens safety James Ihedigbo then tried to catch the ball, that was headed towards the ground, but ended up tipping it back into the air like a volleyball bump. That led Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green to catch it easily for the game-tying touchdown. The Bengals then lost in overtime, but it was an incredible play, even if Green doesn’t think so.

“I was in the right spot at the right time; we talk about that a lot,” Green said, via the Cincinnati Enquirer. “And I was just looking for someone to tap the ball so I could catch it. I stood off to the side and watched. I was thinking about coming back closer to the ball but I stayed right where I was and the ball found me. It would have been a great play had we won.”

It would’ve been a lot different if they won, no doubt about it.
