Standout effort in SB LV win Winfield recorded six tackles (four solo), an interception and an additional defensed pass during the Buccaneers' 31-9 win over the Chiefs in Super Bowl LV on Sunday.
Impact Winfield tied Lavonte David and Sean Murphy-Bunting for second on the team in tackles during the win, helping spearhead a suffocating effort by the Buccaneers defense that largely incapacitated a prolific Chiefs attack. The rookie's season-ending stellar effort put a fitting cap on an outstanding first pro campaign, one that saw Winfield parlay the starting safety job he earned in training camp into 94 tackles (64 solo), three sacks, one interception, five additional defensed passes, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery across 16 games. Given his natural talent and virtually seamless adaptability to the rigors of the NFL in 2020, Winfield likely will carry sky-high expectations from both real-world and fantasy perspectives going into 2021.
