ProFootballFocus.com grades for Week 3: Bengals vs. Packers

See PFF's "About" page for more information on their grading system.

Note: Those with PFF subscriptions may have noticed that the grades posted initially frequently change later in the week (presumably after the All-22 video footage becomes available, giving the analysts a better look). With that in mind, here are notable modifications to Week 2's initial grades:

-They added Domata Peko on offense- he graded +1.0 in just 3 snaps

-Whitworth dropped from +4.6 to +3.6 and Boling dropped from +4.1 also to +3.6 to share the highest grade on offense.

Now, on to Week 3!


Offense

Best: Giovani Bernard (+1.9; +0.8 pass, +0.6 rush, +0.5 pass block)

Other good grades: Kyle Cook (+1.5; -1.1 pass block), A.J. Green (+1.4), Andrew Whitworth (+1.3), Andre Smith (+1.3)

Worst: Jermaine Gresham (-3.6; -2.4 run block)

Other bad grades: Kevin Zeitler (-2.8), Andy Dalton (-1.7), BenJarvus Green-Ellis (-1.5)

Defense

Best: Michael Johnson (+7.1; +4.4 run defense; +2.4 pass rush)

Other good grades: Leon Hall (+3.0), Adam Jones (+1.5)

Worst: Vontaze Burfict (-3.8)

Other bad grades: Geno Atkins (-2.9; -2.4 pass rush), Rey Maualuga (-2.3), Brandon Thompson (-1.9), Domata Peko (-1.7)

Other performances of note:

-In contrast to the first two games, George Iloka (+0.8 overall) graded well in pass coverage (+1.3) but not against the run (-0.7). He's a dead even 0.0 on the year.

-The last time Geno graded in the negative was week 9 of 2011 (-1.9). This is the lowest he's ever graded in a game. Josh takes a closer look.

-Michael Johnson leads all 4-3 DE's in cumulative run defense grade (+8.8) and is second overall among DE's to Robert Quinn.
