Conte was in on 64 snaps in Tampa's Week 11 victory, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Conte continues to distinguish himself in what might end up being the best season of his five-year career. The Bucs' starting free safety posted a season-high in tackles in Week 11 while also collecting his second interception of 2015. Conte has also now amassed 65 tackles, two forced fumbles and six passed defensed over 10 games this year.
Conte collected 10 tackles (seven solo) and his second interception of the season in Sunday's 45-17 victory over the Eagles. Conte enjoyed his best performance of 2015 in Tampa's landmark victory, posting season bests in total tackles and solo stops. The veteran safety also notched one of three picks of Mark Sanchez on Sunday, the most by the Bucs in a game this season. Conte is increasingly proving to be a highly cost-effective and productive free-agent acquistion by the Bucs, and may be having the best season of his five-year career.
Conte was credited with five tackles (four solo), including a tackle for loss, in Sunday's 10-6 victory over the Cowboys. The Bucs' starting free safety continues his solid season, and has now posted stops behind the line of scrimmage in three of his last four contests. The veteran was a key part of holding Cowboys quarterback Matt Cassel to 186 yards passing on 6.4 yards per attempt, and yielding a paltry two yards per rush to the Dallas running attack. Conte continues to be on pace for just under 100 tackles on the season after tallying 55 over Tampa's first nine games.
Conte collected eight tackles (five solo), including a tackle for loss, in Sunday's 32-18 loss to the Giants. Conte continues to be demonstrate he was a solid offseason acquisition for the Bucs, tallying a total of 50 tackles, 12 tackles for loss, two forced fumbles, and an interception on the season. The veteran safety has been productive under a variety of playing time scenarios, and has posted 17 tackles over his last pair of contests alone. Conte figures to have an opportunity for another tackle-laden afternoon in the Bucs' Week 10 matchup versus a rush-heavy Cowboys offense.
Conte totaled nine tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 23-20 overtime victory over the Falcons. Conte tallied a career-high in tackles and has taken full ownership of the starting free safety job he earned earlier in the season. The Bucs secondary did yield 397 yards to Matt Ryan, but it took Ryan 45 attempts to get there. Conte faces another formidable challenge in Week 9 against Eli Manning and a receiving corps led by the dynamic Odell Beckham, Jr.
