What’s the impact Hall-of-Fame semifinalist Ray Lewis has on Brian Urlacher? Who’s a darkhorse who could reach the finals? What happens to Joe Jacoby and Leslie O’Neal? All those questions are answered … here.
In the last 12 Hall of Fame classes, offensive linemen have been shut out only twice (also 2011). The last time two blockers were inducted the same year was 2013 when Jonathan Ogden and Larry Allen both received busts. But that was when the classes included six modern-era candidates.
Carson Wentz has posted 300-yard passing games against Washington, Kansas City and Arizona and four-TD games against the Cardinals, Redskins and Broncos. He has thrown five TD passes of 50 yards or more this season to four different receivers.
There have been seven shutouts in the NFL this season and the Ravens own three of them. No one else has more than one. The last NFL defense to post three shutouts in a single season was the 2003 New England Patriots, who were on their way to a second Lombardi Trophy.
Rodney Harrison was the first player to make 30 interceptions and 30 sacks. He played in Pro Bowls and Super Bowls. He made two different 50th anniversary NFL teams. So why isn’t he in the Hall of Fame?
