Dareus & Darby earn top player nod from PFF

Posted by Chris Brown on October 26, 2015 – 2:40 pm

Each week the stat crunchers and film reviewers at Pro Football Focus list the top performers at each position on offense and defense for that particular week. In Week two Bills defenders earned such recognition.

Marcell Dareus earned the top performance of the week at nose tackle, while Ronald Darby nailed down one of the top spots on the corner. Here was PFF’s assessment of their performances.

Defensive interior – nose: Marcell Dareus, Bills (+4.4)

Not the biggest week for those lined up opposite the center, but Dareus was one Bills’ defender to emerge with credit. He created a sack with his penetration, and was his usual disruptive self against the run.

Cornerbacks: Janoris Jenkins, Rams (+3.1) and Ronald Darby, Bills (+3.1)

Darby is going to keep his stranglehold on our race for Rookie of the Year with another excellent effort that saw him break up three passes. Over in St. Louis, Jenkins edged out LaMarcus Joyner, allowing just three receptions and deflecting two of his own.
