2. Brandon Stephens has been great for the Baltimore Ravens all season

Brandon Stephens has quietly been excellent all season. The Baltimore Ravens signed both Ronald Darby and Rock Ya-Sin, assuming that one would start across from Marlon Humphrey. With Humphrey back, the team has turned those into depth, thanks to Brandon Stephens.

Stephens was excellent on Sunday. He was tested throughout the game and consistently had great coverage. He added an interception, and if Geno Stone was not there to pick off Joshua Dobbs, he would have had another interception. He spent a lot of the day on Hollywood Brown but also had great coverage on the ascending rookie Michael Wilson.

This is not the first game that Stephens has excelled in. Stephens has yet to allow a touchdown this season. He entered the game with just one interception, but now he has two. This is the type of performance the team needed to see to keep confidence in starting him over the stretch run.
