McLeod's game Sunday was representative of his season, with him chipping in via pass defense and sure tackling. He finished the year with 83 tackles, seven passes defensed, including three interceptions and a sack, all of which were career highs. He played in 99.4 percent of Philadelphia's defensive snaps on the season, second only to fellow starting safety Malcolm Jenkins.

His sack on former teammate Sam Bradford was his first of the season, and his interception was his third take away. McLeod will look to continue his stellar play in Week 8 as the
McLeod recorded 14 tackles Sunday against Washington.
McLeod posted his highest tackle total of the season, and after recording five or fewer tackles in each of his first three games, he now has 23 over his last two contests. Although he's never averaged more than five tackles in any of his previous four years in the league, it's possible that he's beginning to emerge as a player in his first year with the Eagles. In addition, he's already tied his career high with two interceptions, so he's clearly trending upward. For now, he's a player to watch, and if he can produce for the next week or two, he'll be a player worth adding in IDP leagues.
McLeod recorded nine tackles (eight solo) in Sunday's loss to the Lions.
The safety was on the field for all 61 defensive plays in Sunday's loss. Expect similar things heading forward from the ball-hawking safety as he looks to shut down DeSean Jackson and the Washington passing attack this Sunday.
McLeod picked off a pass and recorded five tackles Sunday against the Steelers.
Although the Eagles' secondary was much maligned coming into the season, McLeod has now intercepted passes in two of three games to start the season. In addition, he's recorded between four and five tackles in each contest this year. After four years with the Rams, he's already tied his career-high with the two interceptions, and he just about on pace to reach the 82 tackles he posted last year.
