We’ve crowned the RBC Heritage Player of the Week for Week 4, but now it’s time to show some love to the guys who did the dirty work.
This space is devoted to the road graders on the offensive line, the run-stuffers and shutdown DBs on defense, and the special teams standouts. In other words, the guys who don’t have the shiny statistics that attract the spotlight.
