Tre'Davious Tracker: Another strong game from Bills' rookie CB goes relatively unnoticed

Yet another poor defensive outing for the Bills in which Tre'Davious White played a fine game.

Buffalo's defense allowed 40 points (not counting the two Chargers touchdowns on turnovers), but the rookie cornerback fared well carrying out his responsibilities.

He didn't see much of Keenan Allen — the Los Angeles wideout caught one pass for 15 yards on two targets with White in coverage — and the only other reception White allowed was a four-yard gainer to Mike Williams.

Two catches for 19 yards equated to a 63.5 passer rating allowed for White.

He finished the game with an overall grade of +0.8, the 39th-highest grade out of 89 qualifying players at his position.

On 688 snaps so far in 2017, the former LSU standout owns PFF's 11th-best overall grade (+11.1) among cornerbacks and the 10th-best coverage grade (+10.0).

He's allowed a passer rating of 88.8, the 40th-best among the 88 cornerbacks who've currently be targeted more than 30 times during the 2017 season.

White is still tied for the lead in pass breakups (as counted by PFF) with 10.

In Week 12, he'll face the likes of Tyreek Hill, Demarcus Robinson, and, if he returns from injury, Albert Wilson. Beyond the players listed as wideouts on the Chiefs roster, it'll be interesting to see if White squares off with Travis Kelce who currently owns PFF's No. 2 overall grade among tight ends and the top pass-catching grade at his position.
