DeMeco won the tackles battle last week. He also won the extracurricular battle, surprisingly, with a pass defended. ProFootballFocus is seeing the same trend as I have and has taken Cushing out of his typical top 15 spot. They have him all the way down at 27th overall LB for the upcoming week. It's hard no to see it that way with the young studs starting to emerge (Angerer, Mason Foster, Navorro Bowman).
