Lowest Rated Defensive Players: Matt Elam (-11.1), Asa Jackson (-6.7), DeAngelo Tyson (-4.8), Lawrence Guy (-4.5), Terrence Brooks (-3.5).

Elam continues his season of futility with another awful day.  Elam wound up playing all but two snaps on the day after he was forced into the slot following Jimmy Smith’s injury.  The same guy who can’t cover anybody as a safety surely can’t cover anybody as a corner.  Why in the wild world of sports Will Hill only played 12 snaps in this game, only the Raven’s coaching staff knows.

DeAngelo Tyson’s struggles continued as well as he tied for his worst game of the season against the Bengals.  Tyson played 30 snaps and literally came up blank on the stat sheet outside of one assist on a tackle.  Chris Canty can’t heal up fast enough.

Guy is a stretch as a defensive player and is likely only sticking around thanks to the myriad number of injuries the Ravens have suffered along their defensive front.  He posted zero stats on 17 snaps, which is exactly what you recorded by sitting at home on your couch.

Terrence Brooks makes the cut after his worst game of the season.  Brooks played 33 snaps and gave up 3 receptions on 3 targets for 72 yards, and was charged with the game’s deciding play, a 53 yard reception by Mohamed Sanu that put the Ravens on ice.
