FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) - New England's Aqib Talib quieted one of the top receivers in the league last week. All the Patriots' shutdown cornerback has to do this week, is exactly that all over again.
After blanketing Atlanta's Julio Jones during New England's 30-23 victory Sunday night, Talib will now draw Cincinnati's A.J. Green when the Patriots (4-0) meet the Bengals (2-2) on Sunday.
Jones entered his clash with Talib tied for the NFL lead in receptions with 27, while amassing a league-leading 373 yards. Talib held him to just three catches for 22 yards on his first 10 targets, and hauled in a key interception on a deep pass - intended for Jones - in the fourth quarter.
Despite a struggle last week against Cleveland, Green enters Sunday with 26 catches for 300 yards and three touchdowns.
