Trust = spike production for that player


Brock Purdy (TRUST): Purdy came out of the bye and calmed the panic about the three-game losing streak.

He was 19-of-26 (73.1%) for 296 yards (11.4 Y/A) with three touchdowns.

Most importantly, he threw zero interceptions, which was the only thing people were in an uproar about in the first place.

Purdy has now completed over 70.0% of his passes in three straight games and has thrown for over 11.0 yards per pass attempt in each of the past two.

He leads the NFL with 9.3 Y/A on the season.

Purdy was 8-of-9 for 213 yards and three touchdowns on throws 10 or more yards downfield.

For the season, he has now completed a league-high 62.3% of his throws with 10 or more air yards. The league average is 49.3%.

Purdy will look to stay hot against a Tampa Bay pass defense that stopped the bleeding last week against Will Levis.

Even with that game factored in, the Bucs have allowed 8.4 Y/A since their Week 5 bye, which is 31st in the league.

When the Buccaneers have not pressured the quarterback over that span, they are allowing a league-high 77.5% completion rate and 9.2 yards per pass attempt (31st) with eight touchdowns and zero interceptions.

Purdy leads the NFL in completion rate (79.1%) and yards per pass attempt (10.5 Y/A) without pressure this season.
