Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE
Corey Graham: B+
Graham made a great play with his third quarter interception. He looked extremely comfortable in his first start with the Ravens and also had a big hit on the Steelers final drive of the game. Could he potentially start even when Jimmy Smith gets healthy again?
Chris Johnson: B
Although he was only signed this past week, Johnson still made a big impact. He forced a fumble early in the game that led to a Ravens field goal. Unfortunately that was basically it as Johnson would later leave the game with a hamstring injury.
Cary Williams: C+
Started the game on the wrong foot with a pass interference penalty called on him. Williams also had some problems in containing Emmanuel Sanders, who would sometimes get open deep.
James Ihedigbo: B-
Even though he's a backup safety that mostly plays on special teams, Ihedigbo made an impact tonight. His big play was a sack on a safety blitz late in the fourth quarter.
Bernard Pollard: B-
You can always count on Pollard to deliver a big hit. He laid out Jericho Cotchery late in the fourth quarter. Pollard does indeed "deliver the boom" for the Ravens defense and he finished fourth on the team in tackles tonight with three.
Ed Reed: A-
It really was not surprising to see that Reed was the one who scooped up the Johnson fumble. He returned it 17 yards, adding to his ridiculous amount of return yardage that he's gained through his long career. Reed also helped in containing the Steelers deep passing game.
