Bengals receiver confident

Johnson leads AFC in receiving with 43 catches for 655 yards and five touchdowns

Chad Johnson is ready for his next cornerback challenge. The Bengals wide receiver will face Green Bay's defense Sunday, and his probable matchup is Al Harris. Harris, who had a franchise record 24 passes defended, has 10 knockdowns and two interceptions this season. Johnson called Harris the best corner he has faced so far.

"There are two things for Brother Harris this week," Johnson said. "The bad thing is he has to cover me. The good is he can save 15 percent by switching his (auto) insurance to Geico."

Packers coach Mike Sherman said the Johnson-Harris duel will be "fun to watch. ... Chad is tough. He's a tremendous competitor in his own right.

He's courageous and has all the attributes you look for in a wide receiver."

Johnson also complimented Packers strong safety Mark Roman, a former Bengal who is second on the team with 39 total tackles.
