DT Domata Peko –
Peko is in the same boat as Cook, both solid veteran players who get by on smarts and hustle play. After Geno went down Peko became a non-factor and showed no ability to beat a double team. He is a pro’s pro and the veteran nose tackle will be just as upset about the performance as any fan. PFF had Peko graded as a –1.9 for both run and pass performance, he will have to rally this defensive line and lead by example to replace a gaping hole left by Geno Atkins.
