4. Texans LB DeMeco Ryans vs. Raiders RB Darren McFadden
Ryans is an every-down player who can work through traffic and get to the ball. He has great instincts and is a good tackler. He is good on run blitzes and is effective in pass coverage. He is at his best when he can run to the ball, but struggles sometimes shedding the blocks of fullbacks.
McFadden seems to be healthy for the first time in his career. He has an exceptional combination of speed and quickness. He can run inside or outside and is blessed with elite acceleration. He is also a talented receiver, and possesses the ability to throw the halfback pass.
