Carlton Davis, CB
Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Carlton Davis had just 68 tackles all season long. He also totaled 3.5 tackles for a loss, 18 passes defended, and four interceptions. That is a very average season for a secondary defender.
Davis appeared in 14 of the 16 Buccaneers games this year. That averages his statistics out to just 4.8 tackles, 0.25 tackles for a loss, 1.28 passes defended, and 0.29 interceptions per game on average throughout the entire regular season.
In the one postseason game Davis has played, he had nine tackles and two passes defended. That is above his average in the regular season. He was all over the field against the Washington Football Team last weekend making plays.
We can only expect that he will do the same coming into the game with the Saints where Drew Brees loves to throw the ball short. Davis, being an exceptional secondary tackler, should be someone that Brees stays away from when the two meet again on Sunday.
