Remember A.J. Green's "slow" start a couple weeks ago? The Bengals WR could end up with his most receiving yards to start a season if he gets just 77 vs. Seattle on Sunday. The most he's ever had through his first five games is 493. He has 417 entering this Week 5 game.

Because Seattle boasts the NFL's seventh-best third-down defense, Bengals RB Jeremy Hill said first and second down would be key for Cincy's offense this week. So far, the Bengals have been really good on first down. According to ESPN Stats & Information, they're averaging a league-best 7.4 yards on first down.
