Grades for Packers-Patriots

Here are the top takeaways from Sunday night’s Packers-Patriots game, including the highest graded players for each team:


— Second rounder Quinten Rollins dropped two interceptions, but can be happy with his day that saw him allow 5-of-10 balls thrown into his coverage for just 26 yards.

— Former Stanford linebacker James Vaughters only got 13 snaps to show his worth but managed to turn to pick up a pressure, a defensive stop and a further tackle in an impressive cameo.

—  Not a great start to the preseason for HaHa Clinton-Dix who didn’t show enough control coming down to support in the run game, missing three tackles, two of which came on back to back plays.

Top 5 graded players:

James Vaughters (+3.3)

Ladarius Gunter (+3.2)

Quinten Rollins (+2.7)

Andy Phillips (+2.0)

Mike Pennel (+1.8)


— Nobody made a stronger impression than former Saints sixth rounder Rufus Johnson who feasted on the Packers backup lineman. He ended the day with a sack, hit, two hurries, a batted pass and a couple of other pressures called back on penalties.

— Bad news for Jimmy Garoppolo fans. He had the lowest grade on the day and really struggled against the blitz with a terrible -3.2 grade in this regard.

— Rob Ninkovich and Chandler Jones may get a rest this year. Both Trey Flowers and Jabaal Sheard got some pressure in limited action, with Flowers even bested starter David Bakhtiari for a sack and a hit.

Top 5 graded players:

Rufus Johnson (+7.6)

Chris Barker (+1.6)

Robert McClain (+1.4)

Trey Flowers (+1.2)

Jordan Richards (+1.2)
