Defensive Grade analysis for the Washington Redskins preseason win at home over the Cleveland Browns.

The Redskins defensive line played the second straight game without Jason Hatcher but again they did a nice job in the trenches.  None of the Defensive linemen were able to come up with a sack but they did force a lot pressure on the Browns quarterbacks and assisted the outside linebackers (Ryan Kerrigan) in coming up with a few sacks themselves.

I thought Barry Cofield played well at nose tackle and was very active in the middle.  Jarvis Jenkins and Chris Baker plugged up a lot holes in the running game and they did a nice job of collapsing the pocket.  The reserve linemen continued the good play.  Backup nose tackle Chris Neild stood out the most to me of the reserve D-linemen.  And Kedric Golston was good as well.

This is the second consecutive physical game from the defensive line which is a good thing to see.

Defensive line grade –  B+
