Lowest Rated Defensive Players: Matt Elam (-8.5), Asa Jackson (-6.7), Chykie Brown (-3.4), DeAngelo Tyson (-2.7), Lawrence Guy (-2.5)
Jackson is out with a toe injury, and Brown was a healthy scratch against the Falcons. Recently signed Dominique Franks proceeded to put in a solid performance, and perhaps solidified their roles on the bench going foward. Hopefully.
Elam continues to play poorly, but saw his fewest snaps of the season in week seven. The Ravens are finally starting to whittle away at his role in favor of Terrence Brooks.
Tyson also saw his snaps cut almost in half (18 vs. 37) after he played poorly in week six. He did play better this week, recording a QB hit and one tackle, but still received a negative grade.
Guy played sparingly as well, recording 13 snaps, but once again couldn’t manage much. He had one tackle and was otherwise invisible, as he has been through the entire season.
