[BN] Blitz newsletter: Don't be fooled by Tre'Davious White's low interception total – he's playing great

Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White logged four interceptions as a rookie and aimed for at least five in his second year.

With five games to play in the regular season (yes, really), White only has one interception on the season. But don't confuse his lack of takeaways with poor play.

According to stats from Pro Football Focus, White is one of the least-thrown-at defenders in the league. In other words, it's hard to get interceptions when your coverage is so good that other teams don't even throw the ball near you.

“People can be blinded by numbers,” White said. “They see a guy with five, six picks, but that can be deceiving. It's not necessarily that they're playing at a high level. I try to put great stuff on film so the real people that know football, watch the film, they know how I'm performing."

NFL picks for Week 13: All three pickers are taking the Bills +5.5 this week. It used to be a bad omen when the News' pickers unanimously took the Bills, but with fewer writers making picks this season, maybe it's not so bad. Milt Northrop projected a 23-21 Dolphins win in his Week 13 bettors guide, but the Bills would cover that, too.
