  • C Rodney Hudson vs. DI Damon Harrison – Harrison is questionable for the game with an elbow injury, but if he plays, this will be a great matchup between two of the best at their positions in the NFL. Hudson is PFF's fifth-ranked center with an 80.7 overall grade this season. He leads all centers in PFF pass-blocking efficiency, having allowed only one pressure in 407 pass-block snaps. Hudson might have the advantage in the passing game, but Harrison has an edge in the run game. He is the fifth-ranked interior defender this year with a 90.6 overall grade and is first with a 94.0 run-defense grade. He is third among interior defenders with 25 run stops, after leading all defenders with 49 run stops in 2016.
