Dolphins’ Xavien Howard Excited for Matchup with Bengals’ A.J. Green

Miami Dolphins cornerback Xavien Howard has been making a name for himself as an elite defensive back this season and is looking forward to his upcoming matchup with Cincinnati Bengals All-Pro wide receiver A.J. Green in Week 5, according to Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post.

“He got an opportunity to make a great play on me,” Howard said , referring to the touchdown Green scored on him in a 10 reception 172 yard performance 2 seasons ago. “I thought it was a push off.”

Howard said it was a deep pass play, though not a touchdown. But what hurt most was it was featured on a segment with Randy Moss.

“I remember it in the back of my head, Because I saw it on ‘You Got Mossed!’ So I got a little bit of heat on that. I was like (my gosh). I’m ready this week, though.”

Howard vs. Green should be a premier matchup to watch as the two teams duke it out this Sunday.
