Another week is in the books. And no doubt you smashed your opponent in every matchup with your fearsome defense. Didn’t you?
At free safety we’re back to a shared job. Jalen Thompson (43) was back after barely playing a week ago. Deionte Thompson (33) lost out.
Just like 2018, the strong safety position is frustrating in Atlanta. This week Ricardo Allen (61) played the spot with Kemal Ishmael seeing just 18 snaps. Damontae Kazee (48) moved to free safety with Blidi Wreh-Wilson (57) and Kendall Sheffield (50) both spending some time in the slot.
There are just too many ways to get this wrong on a weekly basis so avoid it if you can.
The Ravens enjoyed a bye week.
Star CB Donte Jackson (48) returned after his injury. He managed just two tackles.
OLB Brian Burns played just 22 snaps. Some observers suggested there was something wrong with him. If they’d been reading this column, they’d know he’s been used much less since Bruce Irvin (43) got healthy.
The Bears played just 45 defensive snaps this week against the Chargers.
