I honestly don’t know what to make of the secondary’s performance on Sunday. It actually was not bad by any stretch of the imaganition. However, they were going up against a fourth-string quarterback. Even the 30th-ranked passing defense in the league shouldn’t have too much trouble with that.

Case Keenum completed 20-of-41 passes for 185 and an interception. Those are not good numbers, but again, he is a fourth-string quarterback.

My man Will Hill recorded eight tackles on the afternoon including one tackle for a loss. The newly-acquired Rashaan Melvin also recorded eight tackles. It’s about time that the Ravens get a pleasant surprise out of their secondary.

Grade: A-
