Tre'Davious Tracker: White's quality outing vs. Saints overshadowed by rest of Bills defense

The Buffalo Bills defense was gashed by the New Orleans Saints in Week 10, but rookie cornerback Tre'Davious White had another sound contest.

He allowed two receptions for 35 yards and has one pass deflection on three targets in his coverage area. That equates to a 106.2 passer rating.

His +1.6 overall Pro Football Focus grade was tied for the ninth-best among 88 qualifying cornerbacks in Week 10.

As you can probably imagine, White was the sole Bills defender to receive an overall PFF grade of +1.0 or higher against the Saints. Matt Milano had the second-highest grade among Buffalo defenders at +0.7.

White did not miss a tackle in the loss to New Orleans and had two "stops."

On 614 snaps so far in 2017, the former LSU standout owns PFF's 10th-best overall grade (+10.3) among cornerbacks and the seventh-best coverage grade (+10.0).

He's tied for the league-lead among cornerbacks with 10 pass breakups, and the 51 percent catch rate he's allowed is the 15th-highest among 116 qualifiers at his position.

White's surrendered a passer rating of 90.1, which places him at No. 56 in that stat category.

At this point last year, Stephon Gilmore had given up a passer rating of 89.0 and had the No. 99 overall grade among 116 qualifying quarterbacks.

White has been a steady force on Buffalo's defense, outside of a poor effort against the Jets in Week Nine. He'll likely draw Chargers productive wideout Keenan Allen, who's currently PFF's No. 31 receiver and has accounted for 26.3 percent of Los Angeles' receiving yards, in Week 11.
