Corey Graham has been a beast for the Ravens.
When Lardarius Webb, the Ravens' best cornerback, was lost for the season in Baltimore's Week 6 win over the Cowboys, I thought it'd be a catastrophic blow to the team's secondary.
But thanks to the efforts of players like Corey Graham (along with Cary Williams), the Ravens secondary has risen to the challenge.
Graham had the game of a lifetime last Saturday in Denver, intercepting Peyton Manning twice, once for an early pick-six and the other coming in overtime, leading to the game-winning field goal. This Sunday, Graham is expected to primarily cover Patriots receiver Wes Welker, which will be one of the game's critical matchups.
With New England tight end Rob Gronkowski lost for the remainder of the postseason, Welker will get a ton of targets (13 last week). It'll be up to Graham, once primarily a special teams player, to make sure Welker doesn't sink Baltimore's playoff hopes.
Given his recent play, I believe Graham will answer the bell and help lead the Ravens to victory.
