Well, injuries spoke, picking off nickel corner Tavon Young, then Smith and finally Peters. After Averett endured a fractured shoulder and a healthy scratch in Week 14, he suddenly found himself slotted into Peters’ iron-man role for two games the Ravens could not lose. It wasn’t as if they changed their scheme to protect the former Alabama standout. Defensive coordinator Don “Wink” Martindale blitzed freely and trusted Averett to hold up. After a solid performance in Week 15 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, he broke up two passes against the Giants, complementing Humphrey just as he did in their college days.
