Baltimore Ravens rookie outside linebacker Za'Darius Smith collected two sacks against the Kansas City Chiefs to bring his total to four on the season and with that he makes EA Sports Madden Ultimate Team Star of the week. Making the MUT team is no small feat as it means that Smith is a rising star on the Ravens roster.

In a season with not a lot hope along the defensive side of the ball, it's nice to see that Smith is getting noticed. His production on Sunday is something the Ravens are going to need in the long run because outside Smith, and Elvis Dumervil, the Ravens don't have any outside linebackers who can create a pass rush against opponents. That is something the Ravens will address in the offseason, even if Terrell Suggs can come back healthy from his second Achilles tear.
