Green confirmed the news himself on Thursday via the Cincinnati Enquirer. Saturday night's prime-time showdown airs exclusively on NFL Network at 8:25 p.m. ET.
The Bengals are now firmly in the spoiler role, which is enticing for the right kind of person. Green has always been one of the league's fiercest competitors, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him test a very good Houston secondary. Green's last full game resulted in seven catches for 68 yards and a touchdown against the Giants back on Nov. 14.
While we often try to separate the church of fantasy and football news, Green's impact might be most appreciated by the lucky owners who now should have a gigantic weapon at their disposal on championship weekend. Sometimes there are other ways to provide hope when the actual playoffs are out of reach.
