Dareus, 2 guards earn praise

Bills DL Marcell Dareus and guards Andy Levitre and Kraig Urbik earned high marks from the film reviewers and stat crunchers at Pro Football Focus for their performances against the Giants last Sunday.

In their words Marcell Dareus was dominant, which explains why he saw so many double teams come the second half of the game. Here’s what they wrote about Dareus’ game Sunday.

When you pick someone with the 3rd selection of the draft you don’t just want them to play solid football, you expect them to eventually take over games, and for the first time that is what Marcel Dareus (+5.1) did in this game. He’s put together “half” performances in the past; getting pressure but doing little as a run defender, but here he was the full package. He registered five hurries (of which one was nullified by a penalty) but importantly also gave Kevin Boothe more than he could handle in the running game.

PFF also had high praise for both Urbik and Levitre.
