David tallied seven tackles (four solo) and a pass defensed in Tampa's Week 12 loss to the Colts. It was a second single-digit tackle performance for David, who had posted 22 stops over Weeks 9 and 10. David played an integral part in erasing any semblance of a Colts running attack in Week 12, but faces a tougher challenge in Week 13 versus a Falcons backfield that may feature both Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman. Overall, the standout linebacker continues to perform at a high level, and may soon have an added level of responsibility if teammate Kwon Alexander loses his appeal of a looming four-game suspension.
David was in on 63 snaps in Week 11, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports. David actually received his first snaps off all season during the 45-17 blowout of the Eagles, and produced an effort worthy of the NFC Defensive Player of the Week honors. The rest was likely a positive for the star linebacker as the Bucs enter the stretch run of the season still in contention for a wild-card spot. David and the Bucs take on the Colts in Indianapolis in Week 12.
David collected six tackles (all solo) and his first two interceptions of the season in Sunday's 45-17 victory over the Eagles. David was outstanding Sunday, tallying his first two interceptions of the season, one of which was a walk-in 20-yard pick-six in the fourth quarter that closed out a momentous 45-point effort by the Bucs. The stellar performance came on the heels of head coach Lovie Smith and defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier having called for more "splash plays" from the Pro Bowl-linebacker, who responded in prominent fashion. David leads the Tampa defense into a Week 11 road tilt versus the Colts and Matt Hasselbeck.
David once again played in all 54 snaps in Week 10, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports. David once again played every single snap on defense in Week 10, posting his second-highest number of tackles in a game this season. The fourth-year pro played an integral part in helping the Bucs limit the normally proficient Cowboys running attack to two yards a carry over 21 attempts, playing one of his stoutest games of 2015 versus the run. David and the Bucs face off against the Eagles' three-headed backfield in Week 11.
David notched 12 tackles (five solo) and a sack in Sunday's win over the Cowboys. David was very dominant on Sunday as the Buccaneers put on a very impressive defensive performance, holding the Cowboys to just six points. He led all players in the game in tackles and also recorded his second sack of the season. David hold very strong IDP value at the linebacker position and he'll continue to make plays for the Bucs' defense moving forward.
