Ryan was attempting to throw the ball and it was knocked out of his hand by Barrett. The ball rolled on the ground and made a perfect bounce to the rookie linebacker, as Devin White ran 91 yards into the end zone.
According to Jenna Laine of ESPN, the 91-yard fumble touchdown is the longest in Buccaneers’ history. It is the second fumble-return touchdown for Devin White in his first year in the NFL.
Coming into Sunday’s game, White had 86 tackles, three forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries, and an interception. Tampa Bay has definitely found a cornerstone on the defensive side of the ball in White.
