Jonte Green: B-
Green got the start at cornerback in this game opposite Chris Houston. He played a strong game and did a better job of locating the ball. Green did get called for a long pass interference call, but he broke up a few passes as well.
Chris Houston: B
Houston played another very good game as he kept everything in front of him. Houston gives too much cushion at times, but he had an effective day playing a very disciplined game. Houston had eight total tackles against the Seahawks.
Alphonso Smith: B-
Smith is playing the nickel cornerback position for the Lions and he is doing an admirable job. He got beat by wide receiver Sidney Rice for a short touchdown but the throw and catch was well executed. He located the ball and didn’t get burned deep, tacking on four tackles in the stat column.
Ricardo Silva: B+
Silva had a really strong performance against the Seahawks, stepping in for starter Amari Spievey . He stopped the run and did a very nice job in coverage. He had a gigantic interception and finished the game with four total tackles. Silva had a very strong game against the Seahawks.
Louis Delmas: B
Delmas’ return to the defense means everything as they are a much better team with him on the field. He made plays all over the field, against the run and the pass. His return makes the defense a very good secondary, but he did get injured and missed some time against the Seahawks.
He had three tackles and looked very strong when he was in the game.
