DE – Carlos Dunlap
Against one of the worst offensive lines in football the Bengals didn’t record a single sack. Carlos Dunlap had to pick it up and be an impact pass rusher. Pro Football Focus graded Dunlap at -2.7, partially for his inability to get to the quarterback.
On the season Dunlap has recorded 6 hurries in comparison, Robert Mathis has 16 and the NFL leader Brian Robinson has 25!
DE – Wallace Gilberry
Yesterday should have been a day to fest for Gillberry, he responded with zero’s on the stat sheet. He did have one key pressure, but was stoned for much of the day against and offense that dropped back 46 times. I know he is a rotational guy but his job is to slice through the line and provide pressure in the absence of Geno Atkins. Pro Football focus graded Gillberry -3.4, his worse game of the year.
