What You Might’ve Missed: Holding his own

A premier OLB, Barrett (58) led the league in sacks a year ago with 19½, and he came into this game with three so far in 2020. But he didn’t register a single defensive statistic of any kind in Sunday’s game, and this play is a good example of what he dealt with in Turner all afternoon. Turner uses a quick first step with his right foot to get into his pass set, and then he engages with Barrett. It’s close to a holding call the way he grabs Barrett’s right shoulder pad, but there’s no flag and the pass to MVS moves the chains.

Play No. 2: Second-and-10 from the Tampa Bay 41, first quarter, 5:16 left

Result: 15-yard completion to Valdes-Scantling
