Jayron Hosley: A+
Hosley missed a second-quarter tackle on Greg Olsen, leading to an extra handful of yards for a driving Carolina offense.
That was about the only thing that went wrong for the rookie corner.
Hosley recorded his first career interception--and the first turnover of the game--with a heads-up deflection from receiver Brandon LaFell. He flashed toe-to-toe speed all night, and performed well when lined up against stand-out receiver Steve Smith.
Kenny Phillips: A
Phillips continues to be New York's most consistent DB. He was all over the field on Thursday, and spent time covering the slot, which was shut down all night long.
Stevie Brown: A
Brown didn't see much playing time on Thursday, but came away with a fourth-quarter interception. He and fellow UFA safety Will Hill are making early impacts in this defense.
Prince Amukamara: B+
In his 2012 debut, Prince allowed a few grabs to Greg Olsen, playing on the right side of a three-DB zone. He was also flagged for a personal foul, but certainly held his own for the most part.
Corey Webster: B
New York's No. 1 corner continues to struggle, and he allowed a few late-game catches to Smith. Still, this was a definite improvement over the past two weeks. He returned to the game after missing some snaps with a hand injury, and drew two pass interference calls as well.
Antrel Rolle: B-
Rolle did tie for the team high in tackles with six, but he continues to be a problem over the top. At times he seemed lost in space, and was out-muscled by Greg Olsen on a few plays. Rolle took a nasty collision with a cameraman in the fourth quarter.
