Mario Williams — B+
A sack and a tackle for a loss highlighted a coming-out party for Williams, who just needs to start making plays on a more consistent basis to be successful and earn a higher grade.
Kyle Williams — A-
Williams generated a great push in the run game and really seemed to be keyed into what the Dolphins were trying to do. The defensive lineman could do a better job in the pass game, but that's just nitpicking.
Marcel Dareus — A
One of the best players of the night, Marcel Dareus was impressive as both a run stuffer and a pass rusher. Dareus shed a lot of blocks on the night, getting into the backfield with ease and earning himself a high grade.
Kyle Moore — B
Though he wasn't slated to be much of anything at the beginning of the season, Kyle Moore has taken his role seriously and made plays all over the field Thursday night. An underrated pass rusher, Moore had a good night considering he rushed against Jake Long.
