It's midterm exam time in the AFC, and Scouts Inc. is handing out the grades.
Here are the grades for the NFC.
The defense is still one of the best in the NFL. ILB Ray Lewis and the defensive line allow only a hair over 70 yards per game on the ground. The secondary, led by FS Ed Reed, is among the top 10 in the NFL against the pass. The Baltimore special teams, specifically both punt and kickoff return units, have done an excellent job of giving the offense good field position all season long.
