Le’Veon Bell vs C.J. Mosley

The battle of these two young stars will be very fun to watch this Sunday night. Le’Veon Bell has become one of the most improved players from his rookie year. Bell has shown tremendous patience when he runs, which helps him scamper for what looks like a two-yard loss, but turns it into a ten-yard gain.

C.J. Mosley is widely considered as the DROY favorite heading into Week 9. He has definitely earned this hype. His play on the field has been nothing short of spectacular, especially as a rookie. His 76 tackles on the season rank him fourth in the entire NFL. The 17th overall pick has already made a name for himself, drawing comparisons to future Hall of Famer Ray Lewis.

C.J. Mosley will be tasked with containing Le’Veon  Bell not only in the run game, but also in pass coverage. Mosley is one of the best cover linebackers, he has two interceptions and six pass deflections. Bell is fantastic in open space, but Mosley takes great pursuit angles and is a sure tackler. If Mosley can keep Bell from getting yards after the catch, this game can definitely shift in the Raven’ favor.
