Highest Rated Defensive Players: Terrell Suggs (18.3), Pernell McPhee (16.4), Elvis Dumervil (15.0), Haloti Ngata (13.7), C.J. Mosley (10.3).

Terrell Suggs continued his tear by adding another sack to his season total, but also gave up a penalty and didn’t do much outside of that. He registered only his second negative grade of the season but keeps his spot at the top of our list, for now.

Pernell McPhee, on the other hand, hasn’t had a negative grade since week one and recorded three hurries and two tackles on only 23 snaps.  For reasons only known to the Raven’s coaching staff, he played on a season low number of snaps in a game where the Ravens could have used more pass rush.

Elvis Dumervil received his first negative grade since week one and was basically invisible against the Bengals.  Dumervil created zero pressure on Andy Dalton after coming into the game ranked second in the NFL in sacks.

Haloti Ngata had his second best game of the season and was an absolute terror while racking up a sack, a hit, a hurry, a forced fumble, seven tackles, and three stops.

C.J. Mosley continued his hot streak by tying for the team lead with 13 tackles.  He did get called on a costly pass interference penalty but was otherwise excellent.
