Brandon Mebane (11.9%) and Clinton McDonald (11.6%) rank 5th and 6th best among DTs in Run Stop Percentage.

Upcoming Opponent: Indianapolis Colts

Luck has a 106.5 QB Rating when throwing the ball in 2.5 seconds or less, but it drops to 73.0 when throwing in 2.6 seconds or more.

Eric Walden (Mathis’ counterpart) has a PRP of 8.3, which ranks 29th of 40 3-4 OLBs.
