BUC BIT OF THE DAY: LB Lavonte David has been one of the premier players at the outside linebacker position this season, with Pro Football Focus grading him as the top 4-3 outside linebacker in the NFL. His 20 pressures (combined sacks, hits and hurries) are the most among 4-3 outside linebackers, while his 27 run stops also lead the league at his position. He has been featured on the midseason All-Pro teams from both Pro Football Focus and the MMQB.
