Kwon Alexander vs. Falcons: Week One
It’s week one, and everybody is the same. The NFL is 0-0 and teams are looking to make their first statements of the 2016 season. Add in the Bucs situation. Koetter is coaching his first regular season game, looking to get off on the right foot. Mike Smith‘s first game with the Bucs was against his former team, the Atlanta Falcons. Needless to say there was a lot riding on this one.
In this opening day win, Kwon Alexander was nothing short of dominant. He played well against the Falcons in 2015 and it continued on this date in the new year. Alexander led the way with 17 total tackles, 15 of them solo, and one sack. Alexander has become the heart and soul of the defense, and on this date, he was that and then some.
The Bucs did make a statement that day with a road victory over the eventual division champs. Alexander was right in the middle of that statement, taking everyone down in his path.
