If the Giantsí season indeed ends on Sunday, the search for answers will undoubtedly lead them to Corey Websterís fall from grace. His clutch play last season helped New York survive an August injury to Terrell Thomas, but his play this year has been unbecoming of a franchise cornerback. It may seem like teams are specifically targeting Webster, as the Baltimore Ravens did 14 times last week. But thatís not the case, as heís faced 92 passes this season versus 98 at this point in 2011. The difference is that, while Webster allowed a 54.6% completion rate, 895 yards, and five touchdowns in 20 games last season; heís already allowed 62.0%, 973 yards, and eight scores this year. After a respectable 1.19 Yards Per Cover Snap (https://www.profootballfocus.com/about/pff-signature-stats/#Coverage) last year, Websterís 1.83 mark this year is the highest for any NFL cornerback with over 250 coverage snaps.
