In limited time last season, offensive tackle Cameron Bradfield showed well, particularly as a pass blocker where he surrendered only four total pressures on 102 pass block attempts. He got the start at right tackle in this game and looks poised to take over the back up role from Guy Whimper who graded at -13.5 last season. The game started out on a sour note as Bradfield got beaten to the inside by DE Justin Tuck who picked up a hit on Gabbert. He was pretty solid on his 11 other pass block attempts at RT, but it was his run blocking where he made his mark. Bradfield was able to seal Tuck, Austin, and Jason Pierre-Paul on run plays and he was a key part of RB Rashad Jennings’ 56 yards on 12 carries.
In the second half, Bradfield got some work in at left tackle and the results were ugly. By my count, he gave up two pressures and a hit on just nine pass block attempts and he also picked up a false start. He appeared much more comfortable playing on the right side against the Giants’ starters than he did playing on the left side against their backups.
