Jerry Hughes: B-
Hughes was able to fight through a double team to get a sack in the third, but it was a coverage sack more than anything. Hughes was much less disruptive this week than in weeks previous.
Dwight Freeney: C-
Freeney continues to struggle to make an impact, not being noticed for most of the game (zero stats of any kind). He aided Hughes to get the Colts lone sack in the third, but again, it was more of a coverage sack than anything.
Both outside linebackers seem to generate more attention from the offense this week, but the Colts' interior DL was unable to take advantage of it.
Jerrell Freeman: B+
Freeman is by far the most active linebacker, being involved in play after play for the Colts. You would still like to see him make more plays behind or at the line of scrimmage, but a good game for Freeman finishing with 14 tackles.
Kavell Conner: B-
Conner, as usual, made some very good plays against the run, but also allowed Chris Johnson to get a couple big gains on cutbacks. Conner finished with four tackles, one of which was the linebacking unit's only tackle for a loss (outside of Hughes' sack).
Pat Angerer: Inc.
Angerer didn't get as many snaps this week, due to his recuperation from his foot injury. However, he did have a crucial pass breakup in the fourth, albeit with his helmet.
