Another solid game from David
The second-year outside linebacker from Nebraska turned in yet another stellar defensive play early in the second quarter when David dropped running back Daniel Thomas for a safety that gave Tampa Bay a 12-0 advantage.

Tampa Bay's leading tackler knifed through an opening between center and guard and tackled Thomas in the end zone as the Dolphins faced second-and-11 from their own 1-yard line. Thomas never had a chance to elude David, who closed in quickly and was never blocked by a Miami offensive line missing suspended guard Richie Incognito and tackle Jonathan Martin, who left the team this month, citing an alleged pattern of bullying by teammates.

David led the Bucs in tackles as a rookie in 2012 and he entered Monday's game on pace for 140 tackles, including 22 for losses, 10 sacks, 16 quarterback hits, two interceptions and 10 passes defended.

David's second pro season got off to a rocky start as his out-of-bounds hit against Jets rookie quarterback Geno Smith set up New York's winning field goal on the final play in Week 1, lifting the Jets to an 18-17 victory.
