Special Teams

Matt Prater: C-

Britton Colquitt: B

Aaron Brewer: A

Overall: B-

Prater’s suspension was found out after the game. It explains why he was off on a few kicks. He did just enough to stay at a C-. Colquitt looks back to form and saw a good amount of punts against the Texans. Brewer is Brewer. He is the long snapper. As long as he gets the ball snapped cleanly with no mistakes, he will continue to get an A.
