Goode registered three tackles and received praise for his pass coverage skills.
Selvish Capers – Capers struggled against the Jaguars pass rush, giving up a sack in the second quarter of the game Friday night. In run blocking, he fared quite a bit better, but he will have to improve to get a roster spot with the Super Bowl Champion Giants.
Najee Goode – Goode received recognition not only for his tackling ability, but also his pass coverage on Friday night. He knocked down one pass forcing a punt and registered three tackles. He also lined up in punt coverage.
Adam Jones – Jones saw time on the field at corner for the Bengals but did not register any statistics to make the box score.
Ellis Lankster – Lankster may have been the top tackler for the Jets (six total, four solo), but he was collecting them after the receiver he was covering caught the ball. His receiver was targeted seven times and caught five passes for 37 yards and two first downs on the night. He did do a nice job coming up and snuffing out a run for a one yard loss late in the game.
Robert Sands – Just before the end of the first half, Robert Sands came in and blocked a punt. A teammate picked it up and returned it for a touchdown, giving the Bengals a 10-3 lead. He also registered two tackles on the evening.
Steve Slaton – Slaton was the recipient of the Dolphins’ first round pick Ryan Tannehill’s very first NFL play – a handoff up the middle for six yards. The very next play, Slaton took another handoff and lost two yards. He never touched the ball again.
Keith Tandy – Tandy had an up and down day in pass coverage, allowing one big completion for a first down, but his man was rarely open. On the night, he registered three tackles for the Bucs.
