Winner: Cornerback Brent Grimes
Brent Grimes had to go against a tough match-up today in Carolina’s big man Kelvin Benjamin. He came out to play in the Bucs final game of the season. He held Kelvin to very little production when on him and contained all other receivers extremely well. He also had the biggest impact play on the game breaking on a quick slant and taking it to the house for his third career pick-six.
Along with the interception he had four pass deflections with two in the end zone. The Bucs offense looked like they forgot how to play after the first drive. With all the injuries to the offense including Brate, they needed help from the defense today and Grimes came through with points. In a game with very little offensive production and turnovers were frequent and Grimes made the most of his.
