The second year defender from Washington State tallied eight solo tackles in the Cardinals’ 34-31 win against Cincinnati, including a QB sack and 2 tackles for a loss. On top of those numbers, Bucannon also recovered a fumble for Arizona. And, it’s worth noting, he did it all while nursing a bum elbow.
The victory makes Arizona 8-2 on the season, making them the number two team in the NFC behind undefeated Carolina.
