Matchup Of The Game: WR A.J. Green Vs. CB Champ Bailey

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green is Andy Dalton's most dependable target. The second-year wide receiver has only dropped two of 46 catchable throws from Andy Dalton, who has targeted Green during over 30 percent of his pass attempts this year (catchable or not).

With the Broncos heading into Cincinnati for Sunday afternoon's game, Denver brings one of the league's best cornerbacks in Champ Bailey.

Seven games into the regular season, Bailey has only allowed 50 percent of the passes targeting receivers he's covering. Additionally opposing quarterbacks have only generated a combined 69.0 passing rating, including strong performances against Matt Ryan, Matt Schaub, Tom Brady and Phillip Rivers.

Bailey recognizes Green as one of the league's best receivers today:

"I think his biggest strength is ball skills," Bailey said. "You see a lot of guys, you see the ball up and they don't know how to go get it. And he's probably the best in the game at going to get it."

Not only is Green's matchup against Bailey a spotlight for Sunday's game, it's a critical matchup for Cincinnati's offense.
