UP: Cornerback Jimmy Smith

The last time Smith faced the Bengals and star receiver A.J. Green, he was left in a sad state and allowed two big touchdowns. On Sunday, Green — and really all of the Bengals’ receivers — had no success against Smith, who showed a glimpse of both his 2014 form and what he could be in 2016 with a year of football under his belt after his foot injury last year. Smith said he didn’t start feeling like himself until midseason, and coincidentally enough, that’s when the Ravens’ pass defense got good. His effort Sunday was a nice way to go out in a trying season for the former first-round pick.
