Players Who Stepped Up
DT Brandon Thompson
The second year tackle only had 3 tackles but was disruptive in the middle making it impossible for the Ravens to run the ball up the middle. Thompson also pressured the QB providing a push in the middle to allow the ends to disrupt Flacco. With Devon Still coming back possibly after the bye, the Bengals have to feel good about the drafted depth.
Is Thompson Geno Atkins? No, but was there a big drop off this week from Atkins to Thompson? No.
