Trevor Scott Makes His MarkAugust 24th, 2013
Unless Joe missed a snap, newcomer defensive end Trevor Scott entered the game on third down midway through the second quarter and promptly recorded his first sack in pewter. He tossed Ryan Tannehill to the turf with Lavonte David coming in late to help.
This might not be a big deal for most teams, but for the pass-rush starved Bucs, every time a quarterback is hit is worth noting.
Daniel Te’o-Nesheim and Adrian Clayborn got starting nods at defensive end. As for Da’Quan Bowers, well, Joe will write more about him later.
Update 9:30 p.m.: Scott recorded another sack early in the third quarter. It’s possible it will be recorded as a half sack to be shared with Bowers. It was, though, Scott whose pressure made the play.
Update 9:45 p.m.: Scott beat his man 1-on-1 from the right defensive end and forced a sack-fumble in the third quarter.
