Last week, Ronde was named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week:
- Barber made his NFL-record 200th consecutive start at cornerback in the Buccaneers’ 16-10 win over Carolina. He had an interception, a sack, five tackles and two passes defensed in the victory.
- The performance was the third time in his career, including playoffs, that he recorded a sack and an interception in the same game. He is the only player in NFL history with at least 40 interceptions (44) and 25 sacks (28).
- Barber led a defense that held the Panthers to 10 total rushing yards, tied for the fewest rushing yards allowed in franchise history (12/4/94). Carolina’s offense led the NFC last year averaging 150.5 rushing yards per game.
- In his 16th year from Virginia, this is Barber’s 10th career Player of the Week Award, including the postseason. He has won nine times on defense and once on special teams. This is his first award since he was named NFC Defensive Player of Week 3 in 2011.
- Barber’s nine Defensive Player of the Week Awards are tied for the most in NFL history with Pro Football Hall of Famers Chris Doleman, Bruce Smith and Lawrence Taylor and Ray Lewis.
