Derek Wolfe: B
The Broncos' top draft pick this season is steadily getting better each week and becoming a bigger part of the defense.
He finished with three tackles on Sunday and teamed with safety Mike Adams to put Bucs running back Doug Martin down for a 1-yard loss in the first quarter.
Justin Bannan: C
Bannan wasn't much of a factor Sunday, making just two tackles but also drawing a costly 15-yard penalty for grabbing the facemask of Martin on a tackle in the first quarter.
Elvis Dumervil: C
Dumervil could not seem to beat left tackle Donald Penn off the line and get much pressure on Freeman and he tallied just two tackles on Sunday. He was also penalized once for a neutral zone infraction.
Kevin Vickerson: B
Vickerson made just three tackles in the game, but he helped push the pocket back in the face of Freeman, rushing him into throws and throwing off Tampa Bay's timing.
Mitch Unrein: A-
When Mitch Unrein looks back on his career, this will be the game he remembers. In the first quarter, Denver brought in one of their heavy packages after Moreno ran the ball down to the 1-yard line. Looking as if they'd run again, Unrein, lined up at fullback, ran into the end zone and Manning floated him a touchdown pass.
Late in the third quarter, Unrein got pressure on Freeman and hit him just as he released the ball. The ball ended up in the hands of Von Miller who ran it in for a 26-yard touchdown.
Unrein came into the game with five tackles on the season, so this is one he'll be talking up for a long time.
Sealver Siliga: N/A
Siliga made one tackle for the Broncos, but he didn't see enough action in order to evaluate.
