Buffalo Bills cornerback Tre’Davious White leads the NFL in interceptions

New, comments

Following his two-pick night, Tre is on top!

Following his two-interception night against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Buffalo Bills cornerback Tre’Davious White is now tied for the league lead in interceptions. New England Patriots cornerback Stephon Gilmore also has six interceptions on the year.

White snagged two picks Sunday night, anticipating where Devlin Hodges was going to throw the ball and breaking on it. He also had two interceptions against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 3. He nabbed one each against the Denver Broncos and Miami Dolphins.

The former first-round pick is also third in the league in passes defended, which is a remarkable stat considering he’s not targeted all that much anymore. He’s been able to shut down big receivers all year from Cortland Sutton of the Denver Broncos to Odell Beckham Jr. of the Cleveland Browns.

The last Bills player with six or more interceptions was Jairus Byrd in 2009 when the rookie notched nine interceptions.

If this isn’t the year for White to make the Pro Bowl, the whole thing is a sham. He’s playing at an All-Pro level and the Bills are going to need to open their checkbook soon.
