Ray McDonald, that's who. He was a monster in both the run game and collapsing the pocket. He made a few outstanding plays today and just gets overshadowed on this defensive unit loaded with stars. He was taking on two blockers almost every snap and he would just fight through them to make a play. Justin smith gets most of the attention on the line but McDonald is playing at just as a high level as anyone on defense right now.
It was a team win, but Ray Mac deserves more credit than he is getting. If you look at the Green Bay game, he was huge in that game as well. He gets PRESSURE and forces the quarterback to move and step, he also stops the run.
