Cornerback: B+

Adam Jones had a heck of a day at corner, with five tackles, a sack, a tackle for loss, a pass deflection and an interception. Russell Wilson looked uneasy throwing Jones’ way all game long, and he paid the price when he tried to test Jones late in the game.

The rest of the corners left some to be desired; Dre Kirkpatrick was torched a number of times down the field but luckily made a clutch play, breaking up a pass after Wilson floated a ball downfield early in the fourth quarter while getting hit by Carlos Dunlap. Darqueze Dennard still looks lost as well, which could be the reason why he still isn’t getting quality snaps in his second season on the Bengals.
