#ProDawgs Week 9: Defensive struggles

New, 2 comments

Marcus Peters got beaten repeatedly, while Mason Foster had a disaster game against the Falcons. Did any ex-Huskies have a good week?

On a Rams defense that struggled in general, Cory Littleton stood up relatively well, recording 9 tackles in their first loss of the season at New Orleans.

Marcus Peters, on the other hand, got burned on multiple occasions by Michael Thomas. Turf Show Times dives further into the headline-creating cornerback.

Desmond Trufant made a pair of tackles in Atlanta’s big win at Washington, but a pair of dropped interceptions were the bigger story.

After week of strong play, Mason Foster was one of many Redskins who were gashed defensively as the Falcons’ run game took over.

The only touch for Dante Pettis came on a punt return for no gain, the second straight week since his return from injury that he’s been held without a catch.

Kevin King can’t seem to stay healthy. He left the Packers’ loss at New England with a hamstring injury and did not return.

Danny Shelton had a pair of tackles for the Patriots, but his playing time was limited by Green Bay leaning heavily on their passing game.

Shaq Thompson had 4 tackles in Carolina’s win over Tampa Bay. Like Shelton, Thompson’s role was minimized by play-calling, as the Panthers used mostly nickel packages that leave the OLB on the bench.

Jermaine Kearse caught just 3 of 9 targets for 20 yards and had a drop as the Jets lost at Miami.

OG Senio Kelemete left Houston’s narrow win at Denver with a thigh injury and didn’t return.

John Ross (Bengals), Budda Baker (Cardinals), Zeke Turner (Cardinals), Sidney Jones (Eagles), and Joshua Perkins (Eagles) were all on bye.
