Punter Rankings - Week 12
Perhaps this week’s most interesting game from a punting perspective features Rex Ryan’s Jeckyll and Hyde New York Jets going up against his former team, the defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens’ run game has struggled mightily this season, with Ray Rice (3.0 YPA) and Bernard Pierce (2.7 YPA) failing to move the chains.
Last week, Rice showed signs of life, but it’s important to note that his stats were helped immensely by going up against an injury-ravaged Bears defense. Meanwhile, the Jets’ defense has been by far the league’s best against the run (+80.9), averaging only 73.2 yards against per game.
