One of the most anticipated matchups on Sunday was between two former Georgia Bulldogs — Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green and Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey.
Having watched Green play since his days at Sanford Stadium, Bailey expected a busy day.
“I expected it, and he didn’t let me down,” he smiled.
Green was targeted nine times, and for the majority of the game, Bailey was matched up in man coverage on the second-year receiver.
The 14th-year cornerback said it was “definitely” the most times he has been thrown to in a game this season.
“I like that, though,” he said. “I love to put myself in position to get the ball thrown my way, whatever it takes.”
