As we profiled today on Buffalobills.com Leodis McKelvin is off to a solid start as one of Buffalo’s starting cornerbacks this season. Here are some other promising figures connected to his play.

Through two NFL games, no other cornerback has played as many snaps as McKelvin according to ProFootballFocus and despite being on the field for more plays than any other cover man, McKelvin ranks in the top 15 in passer rating allowed.

McKelvin is holding opposing quarterbacks to a passer rating of 51.9. That’s good for 14th best in the league.

Also encouraging is nickel corner Nickell Robey’s passer rating against is just 64.1, good for 19th, but he’s only been targeted nine times in two games. McKelvin has been targeted more than any other cornerback in the league with 26, yet he’s allowed just 10 completions.
