Tre'Davious Tracker: Bills' rookie CB is rolling as he heads into rematch with Pats, Gronkowski

Tre'Davious White had another Defensive Rookie of the Year caliber performance in Buffalo's win over Miami on Sunday.

Against the Dolphins, White received a Pro Football Focus overall grade of 87.7 – in the "elite" range – the sixth-highest among 122 qualifying cornerbacks in Week 15.

He was thrown at eight times and allowed three catches for 58 yards with one interception and one pass breakup. All that equated to a passer rating of 24.0 for Jay Cutler.

The 2017 first-round pick made four tackles and had two stops. He did not miss a tackle. The last game in which he was credited with a missed tackle was Week 11 against the Chargers.

On the season, in PFF's system, White has defended 11 passes, the third-most among all cornerbacks. He's also allowed a catch rate of 48.6 percent, the ninth-lowest figure among 119 qualifiers at his position.

He currently owns PFF's third-highest overall season grade – 91.9 – among all cornerbacks.

In Week 13, White covered Rob Gronkowski on three Patriots pass plays. On the first, Tom Brady threw in a different direction. On the second, White nearly made an interception down the sideline but Gronkowski wrestled away the ball, which resulted in a 30-yard gain.

White intercepted Brady on the third instance in which he covered Gronkowski. After the pick, the New England tight end delivered the well-documented dirty hit on White.

It'll be interesting to see whether or not the Bills allow White to cover Gronkowski more in Week 16.
