As we predicted in early November, Texans linebacker Brian Cushing ran away with the Defensive Rookie of the Year award. Bills safety Jairus Byrd was a distant second.
(Ed. Note: To update the defensive stats from earlier in the year, Cushing was part of 18.5 percent of Houston defensive plays, second behind Patrick Willis. He led the league with 38 Defeats, while Willis was second with 33 Defeats. 38 Defeats is the most any player has had since Ray Lewis had 39 in 2003.)

It's a year of huge cornerback contracts, with A.J. Bouye and Stephon Gilmore breaking the bank. But will these big-money contracts, and the big-time gambles associated with them, pay off?
