You know things are going bad when even Kevin Huber is struggling.
Now, here’s the Week 10 Good, the Bad and Ugly for the defense and special teams:
There wasn’t much positive about Sunday, but Vinnie Rey was one positive. As the MLB in Maualuga’s absence, the 3rd year player came up with a team leading 15 tackles, 3 sacks, 1 INT, 3 passes defensed and 3 tackles for a loss. Rey Maualuga who? Chew on this for a moment – in 1 game, Rey matched Maualuga’s 5 year sack total! My guess would be the Maualuga will get his starting position back when he is healthy, but should he? I would say no.
Without their best CB, DT and starting MLB, the Bengals held the Ravens to 189 yards and forced 3 turnovers on the road. That is getting it done. There were 134 yards of penalties, but on some very questionable calls.
