Amazingly our defense made the Ravens look worst on offense than our own offense looked. Honestly, I don't get it.
Running Back: Ray Rice, BAL (-2.1)https://www.profootballfocus.com/blog/2 ... -week-5-2/
He had two touchdowns, but he also managed a longest gain of only 7 yards and fumbled the ball away. He got his touches, but that running game is still to get going.
Dishonorable Mention: Trent Richardson (IND)
Full Back: Vonta Leach, BAL (-2.5)
His blocking, and this is something you don’t often say, left a lot to be desired.
Dishonorable Mention: Frank Summers (BUF)
Wide Receivers: Darrius Heyward-Bey, IND (-2.7) and Steve Smith, CAR (-2.4)
Catching none of his six targets (including dropping an easy screen pass), Colts fans got a glimpse of the old “DHB”. Meanwhile, a rare appearance for Smith, inspired by his crucial dropped pass of a would-be touchdown.
Dishonorable Mention: Kenny Britt (TEN) and Mike Wallace (MIA)
Tackles: Bryant McKinnie, BAL (-5.9) and Erik Pears, BUF (-6.7)
A rough day for Pears, who was not only beaten for a sack and four hurries, but had a tough time in the run game. The same can be said of McKinnie, who himself allowed two hits and four hurries.
Dishonorable Mention: Donald Stephenson (KC) and Cameron Bradfield (JAX)
Guards: A.Q. Shipley, BAL (-6.6) and Shawn Lauvao, CLE (-5.8)
When Shipley, normally a center, had to fill in for Kelechi Osemele it didn’t go well. He just wasn’t a match for a strong Dolphins defensive line. On Thursday Night Football, the Browns went pull blocking crazy and Lauvao was the man often chosen to execute. Unfortunately, in his return from injury he wasn’t quite up to the task.
Dishonorable Mention: Logan Mankins (NE) and Uche Nwaneri (JAX)
