Carolina Panthers Week 6 grades at Tampa Bay Buccaneers in London
Defensive Line: A+
Defensive Backs: A+
Cornerback James Bradberry intercepted quarterback Jameis Winston on both the first and last plays from scrimmage for the Buccaneers. The two picks bookended an impressive showing for this defensive unit up front and in the secondary, in addition to highlighting a 10 tackle, four pass breakup performance from the former second-round selection.
Defensive lineman Gerald McCoy added three tackles, two and one-half sacks, plus four hits on Winston during the contest. Playing against his former team, McCoy took full advantage of getting to see Tampa Bay twice this season with impressive outings in both games.
Luke Kuechly, Ross Cockrell and Javien Elliott each added an interception and Bruce Irvin picked up a fumble as the defense produced six turnovers. Obada had one tackle for a loss and nearly recorded a sack, if not for Vernon Butler knocking the ball loose from Winston.
