Bengals vs. Ravens: Pro Football Focus notes and numbers

I LOVE Pro Football Focus!! - Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

Taking a look at some of PFF stats and notes heading into Cincinnati's regular season finale against the Baltimore Ravens.

A few notes from our friends at Pro Football Focus (h/t Jake Liscow).

+ From the site's 32 observations on Thursday:

On passes that are in the air for at least 40 yards, A.J. Green has six catches for 324 yards and two touchdowns. That is 80 yards more than any other receiver.

And for the Ravens:

Receiver Torrey Smith has 60 or more yards in 11 games this season, which is tied for the second most for all players.

+ Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green and linebacker Vontaze Burfict were voted to the '14 Pro Bowl Friday night. However, Green wasn't named to Pro Football Focus' all-star team. Joining Burfict was Andrew Whitworth.

+ Bengals quarterback made the PFF team of the week last week.

Is it his time? Will the Bengals QB add his name to a list featuring players like Eli Manning and Joe Flacco who have got hot at the right time? If he can carry this form into the postseason then that’s something every team in the AFC should be watching out for.

+ Giovani Bernard will need to have a masterful game against the Ravens this weekend for the rookie of the year race.

  • Ravens DE Elvis Dumervil is the top-ranked pass rusher for 3-4 outside linebackers in Pass Rushing Productivity. Dumervil has generated 10 sacks and 60 pressures on 300 pass rushing snaps -- generating a pressure on 20 percent of his pass rushers this year. By comparison, Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton has been pressured on 25.2 percent of his drop backs all season.
  • Ray Rice is the worst-grade running back this season and BenJarvus Green-Ellis is the third-worst. Rice has only broken 13 tackles on 259 touches this year, last in the league. He's also second-to-last in yards per route run with 286 yards receiving on 300 pass routes.
  • Jermaine Gresham's drop rate of 6.12 percent is eighth among tight ends with at least 60 target. Tyler Eifert's 11.36 percent drop rate is nearer towards the bottom of the leaderboard.
  • Chris Crocker ranks second among all slot corners with 11.9 snaps per reception allowed. His .64 yards allowed per coverage snap in the slot is the best in the league and the opposing quarterback rating on throws he's targeted on is 52.8.
