Buccaneers to activate two key defenders off reserve/COVID-19 list against the Saints
Mon, Jan 11th 5:05pm EST
While the Saints remained as three-point favorites against the Buccaneers, the over/under ticked down from 51.5 to 51. The line movement could be the result of the activation of McLendon and White with White in particular being an integral part of the Tampa Bay defense. White led the team in the regular season with 140 tackles and was second on the team with 9.5 sacks. McLendon appeared in nine games but totaled just 17 tackles including two tackles for loss. White will help a Buccaneers defense that allowed 375 yards and 23 points to a Washington team that had Taylor Heinicke making his first career start at quarterback.
