Jalen Pitre – Safety

This week, Jalen Pitre had a quiet game and he never stood out, but that isn’t all that bad. Pitre had two tackles and three assists, so that’s not a terrible game, but not impressive either. Pitre must step up against the run, and this is the second week where the opposing running backs had a good outing.

Pitre played well against the pass but struggled big-time tackling. If Pitre wants to stand out, he must complete his tackles sooner than later.

Kenyon Green – Offensive Guard

Kenyon Green had this first start with the Texans and looked decent. Green played a total of 62 snaps but underperformed compared to last week.

His pass and run blocking were not great, and he must step up if he wants to stay in the lineup. Again, this is Green’s first game, so we need to lower expectations.
