Other bad grades: Domata Peko (-1.6), Carlos Dunlap (-1.3; -1.9 pass rush), Robert Geathers (-1.1), Pat Sims (-0.9; -0.6 run defense)

Other performances of note:

-Only three players on offense graded below 0: Roland, Sanu, and Armon Binns (-0.1).

-Trevor Robinson's grades, Week 7 through Week 11: -2.3, bye, 0.0, +0.5, +1.7

-Hopes from last game that Rey Maualuga had finally learned pass coverage (+1.4) were dashed in this game (-2.5 pass coverage).

-Vontaze Burfict bounced back from two straight rough games (-3.9 combined last two weeks) with a solid performance yesterday (+0.1), grading negatively only in pass rush (-0.5).

-Dre Kirkpatrick held his own in his second round of defensive snaps: -0.2 in 25 snaps. He was actually the only member of the secondary to grade negatively in pass coverage; the rest of the unit cumulatively graded +3.8.

-Some special teams love: Kevin Huber (+16.5) is currently the 4th highest graded punter (Nugent is the 16th rated kicker)

-After disastrous run blocking grades against the Giants, TE's Gresham and Orson Charles rebounded against the Chiefs, each earning +1.1 for their efforts.

-There's been a popular narrative this year on the message boards that Andrew Whitworth has not been as dominant as in past years, especially in the run game. Here are his grades through 10 games in each of the last 4 years:

*2012: +12.5 (+14.5 pass block, -1.0 run block)

*2011: +8.6 (+10.8 pass block, -3.5 run block)

*2010: +14.9 (+10.2 pass block, +3.5 run block)

*2009: +18.3 (+12.7 pass block, +8.3 run block)

The grades suggest his pass blocking is as strong as ever, but his run blocking has dropped off. For comparison, Andre Smith is currently at +13.5 (+8.0 pass block, +3.0 run block).
