Husain Abdullah was the team’s most pivotal re-signing.

With Sanders Commings returning to the IR and Eric Berry missing five of the first eight games, safety had all the makings of a liability.

However, Abdullah, who ranks as PFF’s No. 16 (of 154) player at the position, gradually became a vocal leader, flipping a team weakness into a strength.

He has limited opposing passers to a cumulative rating of 72.1 when throwing in his vicinity.

His four quarterback hits also lead the team, while his 32 tackles and four pass defenses rank third.
