4. Champ intercepted a pass intended for Green late in the game.
So no, Champ didn't completely shut down Green, but what do you expect? It was a good matchup, with Green getting a TD, and Champ getting an INT.
Is that the only TD Champ has given up all year?
Dude I agreed with you; however, you said it yourself that Champ didn't shut him down. Not a bad day against such a good receiver, but not a shut out. I wouldn't move Champ at all. Dude takes on the toughest receivers and does a good job on them allowing the young gun CB's to shine opposite him.
