Tre'Davious Tracker: Despite lower-than-usual grade, White blanks Colts wideouts in the snow

Tre'Davious White seemingly had a blast on the field Sunday, and he shut out Colts receivers from the stat book.

In the snow, he didn't allow a catch on just one target. Somewhat strangely, one target for zero yards doesn't equate to a 0.0 passer rating. It's 39.6.

Anyway, White's overall PFF grade of 50.7 ranked 62nd out of 98 qualifying cornerbacks in Week 14. Clearly, his PFF grade was more about his positioning in coverage than anything else.

White made four solo tackles and did not miss a tackle. He hasn't missed a tackle in his last three games.

On the season, Buffalo's 2017 first-round pick has surrendered a 50 percent catch rate and a quarterback rating of 72.3. The latter is the 25th-best figure in 2017.

He's now tied for eighth (out of 115 qualifiers) in PFF's system with 10 pass breakups.

With a recent surge in play from Stephon Gilmore of the Patriots, whom White replaced, it's worth circling back to a comparison of the two cornerbacks.

Gilmore has allowed a catch rate of 61.2 percent on the year. He has four pass breakups, and has allowed a passer rating of 79.5.

White's PFF overall season grade is currently 90.1 – the sixth-highest among all cornerbacks. Gilmore's is 84.3, the 21st-best among corners.

In Week 15, White will likely see a steady mix of the Dolphins' top trio of pass-catchers, Jarvis Landry, DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills.

Landry has the best yards-per-route-run figure of the three (1.57). Stills' is 1.53, and Parker's is 1.36. Landry ranks 41st in that category among 82 wideouts.

Stills has the highest ranking (25th) of the three in quarterback rating on his targets (104.0). Landry's is 92.9, which has him in 45th place. Parker's is 54.7, the third-lowest among those qualifying pass-catchers.
