Myles Garrett, EDGE, 71.2: Myles Garrett was mostly quiet because he didn’t sack Drew Brews, but he did get a quarterback hurry and a hit. He’s reading so much havoc on the offensive line, that his impact should not quantified all the time by sack numbers. This is a high quality score.
Chris Smith, EDGE, 67.1: Starting in place of Emmanuel Ogbah, Smith had a decent game and was particularly strong against the run, where he earned a grade of 70.0.
Genard Avery, EDGE, 54.8: After being a PFF star in Week 1, the Saints kept Genard Avery in check. He had one quarterback hit and a 57.1 pass rushing grade in 21 snaps.
Larry Ogunjobi, DT, 45.5: This grade is one of those things where the “analytics” don’t match the eye test. Larry Ogunjobi was hailed as a hero of this game, but his grades state other wise.
Despite recording two sacks of Drew Brees, Ogunjobi graded out horribly against the run (35.7).
In addition to his two sacks, he also had a quarterback hit.
Trevon Coley, DT, 54.4: Trevon Coley played 21 snaps and two tackles and a quarterback hit.
Carl Davis, DT, 49.4: Carl Davis got in for 10 snaps.
Anthony Zettel, 44.2 EDGE: Anthony Zettel got in for nine snaps.
