Jordan Whitehead just had one of the best games of his career for the Buccaneers, and it has the NFL incorrectly wondering how it happened.

Are there still any questions as to whether or not Jordan Whitehead is one of the best safeties in the NFL? Today marked a massive win for the Buccaneers as they clinched the NFC South for the first time in over ten years, and Whitehead played a huge role in the dominating performance.

Whitehead was everywhere in the game, from putting pressure on the quarterback to intercepting tipped balls, there is no question that number 33 was the best player on the field.

It was hard to find any plays where Whitehead wasn’t in the screen. It almost felt as if the whole secondary was wearing his jersey, but this was just another great performance for Whitehead to add to an impressive highlight reel.

Unfortunately, on a day where the football world should simply marvel at a great performance, the NFL had different questions about where this performance came from. However, to be fair to Whitehead, anyone who has watched multiple Bucs games this season would already know that their starting safety is a beast.

(We already know that the media and the NFL as a whole rarely pay attention to football in Tampa unless the player is Tom Brady.)

Rather than just knowing Whitehead was capable of a performance like this, the NFL is apparently drug testing Whitehead tomorrow according to his Twitter, as has sometimes been the case for players with massive games who don’t live in the headlines.

Yeah, right. Random.

Whether this is a joke or not, this would not be above the NFL. This type of thing happens all the time, and it wouldn’t surprise any Bucs fans that the league higher-ups are just starting to learn about Jordan Whitehead.

Consider this a great introduction. You won’t forget him once you’ve actually watched him play. Hopefully the Buccaneers keeps this in mind and extend him soon.
