One stat shows how dominant of a rookie season Tristan Wirfs has had with Tampa Bay
Every week, it feels like we’re talking about what an incredible season for Iowa offensive lineman Tristan Wirfs is having in his rookie season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. But when you see stats like this, it’s hard to ignore.
Pro Football Focus recently shared one remarkable statistic that shows just how dominant Wirfs has been of the offensive line for the Buccaneers in his first year in the NFL. You can say he’s absolutely lived up to the hype of a 1st-round selection.
Not only did Wirfs carve out a starting role in his rookie campaign, but according to PFF, the ex-Hawkeye has been on the field for 769 pass-block snaps during the season. He has allowed just 1 sack.

Yes, that includes the postseason. You know, when you’re only facing the best teams and players in the league on a weekly basis.
Wirfs will have his hands full in a few weeks, when he takes the field for Tampa Bay against the Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl. But so far, the Buccaneers should be happy that got the offensive lineman out of Iowa so early in the 2020 NFL Draft.
Wirfs was the No. 13 overall selection in last year’s draft. He’s a big reason why the Bucs have a shot to win a Super Bowl title on Feb. 7.
