What has the cornerback room looked like, and who has performed the best through two weeks?
Brandon Stephens - 104 coverage snaps
Primary Receivers: Robert Woods, Tee Higgins
Brandon Stephens has technically been the Ravens' number one cornerback this year, mainly because of Marlon Humphrey being out and both Ronald Darby and Rock Ya-Sin being eased back into play due to injuries.
He has not missed a snap and has consistently lined up on the right side. So, he has seen more than the primary receivers above, but the majority of his snaps were against Woods and Higgins through two weeks.
So far, Stephens has allowed 12 catches on 17 targets for 105 yards. He allowed 26 yards to Woods, and 24 of Higgins' yards were against Stephens, per PFF. Stephens has done an excellent job as a tackler and has kept everything in front of him.
Ar'Darius Washington - 85 coverage snaps
Primary Receivers: Noah Brown, Tyler Boyd
Washington has played the slot for the Ravens, who have gone to their nickel look on 85 snaps in coverage. He has mainly faced off with Noah Brown and Tyler Boyd, although Tee Higgins was able to get matched up with him for a touchdown in week two. Washington has allowed 81 yards and is 11-14 when targeted.
Higgins has the touchdown, but Tyler Boyd was 4-5 for 34 yards against Washington in week two. He played well in week one, but the better receivers got him in week two.
Ronald Darby - 79 coverage snaps
Primary Receivers: Nico Collins, Ja'Marr Chase
Ronald Daby played the majority of the game in week one, but in week two, it was much more of a split with Rock Ya-Sin, who saw about a 60-40 share of the work. Perhaps it was because the Ravens knew that the two would be seeing Ja'Marr Chase, and it would take a full effort from both players. Since both are coming back from injury, it would be hard to give them a full game of Chase. Splitting the duties made life easy, as Darby did not allow a catch to Chase.
He has been 8-15 when targeted for 84 yards, but a lot of that was Nico Collins in week one. Collins had 46 yards against Darby. He did allow the other touchdown to Tee Higgins as well, as he stuck on the left side, and the Bengals moved their pass catchers around.
Rock Ya-Sin - 25 coverage snaps
Primary Receivers: Tank Dell, Ja'Marr Chase
Rock Ya-Sin had seven coverage snaps in week one and then came in for 18 coverage snaps in week two. Almost all of them came against Ja'Marr Chase. He did a strong job, allowing just one catch to Chase for 13 yards. That is the only completion he allowed so far this year. Ya-Sin also had a strong pass breakup on Chase to prevent a touchdown.
