Former Iowa OL Tristan Wirfs in midst of incredible streak with Tampa Bay Buccaneers
You don’t hear much about offensive line stats, but this is a crazy one.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers lineman Tristan Wirfs has successfully blocked defenders on 719 consecutive snaps. That means he hasn’t allowed a sack since Week 5 of 2020.
Talk about dominance.

It’s not surprising that Wirfs is playing well in the NFL. He was a second team AP All-American and first team All-B1G when he played at Iowa. But this kind of dominance can’t be predicted, especially considering it continued through a Super Bowl.
That streak could be on the line this week, though, depending on how Tampa Bay lines up against the Los Angeles Rams. Aaron Donald is probably the most dominant defensive lineman in the NFL, and he’s not easy to stop. In 2 games this season, Donald has 4 solo tackles, 4 QB hits and a sack. Wirfs’ skills will be put to the test if he has to line up against Donald.
We’ll see if Wirfs can keep this up when the Rams and Bucs kick off Sept. 26 at 4:25 p.m. ET on FOX.
