For the first time this season, a rookie led all players in disruptions. Tampa Bay’s Noah Spence wreaked havoc across Seattle’s offensive line. Just as Seattle was starting to take command of the NFC, the Bucs exposed their offensive line with a league leading 25 pressures. Not only did Spence get to the QB, but Gerald McCoy added 4 hurries and 1.5 sacks as the Buccaneers upset the Seahawks 14-5.
Fellow rookie Joey Bosa also made Week 12’s list – proving himself worthy of the #3 overall pick in helping the Chargers defeat the Houston Texans 21-13.
