Buccaneers' Devin White returns fumble 91 yards for touchdown

TAMPA, Fla. -- Tampa Bay Buccaneers outside linebacker Jason Pierre-Paul sacked Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan for a 6-yard loss in the second quarter, forcing a fumble that was returned 91 yards by rookie inside linebacker Devin White for a touchdown.

It was the longest fumble returned for a touchdown in Buccaneer history, according to ESPN Statistics & Information. It was also the seventh-longest touchdown of any kind in team history.

Ryan's arm was hit as he wound up to make the throw. Qadree Ollison attempted to make the grab, but White swooped in, reaching a maximum speed of 21.44 miles per hour, according to NFL Next Gen Stats, the eighth-fastest play by a linebacker this season. White's 21.89 miles per hour reached chasing down Chris Carson in Week 9 is the fastest play by a linebacker all year.

It was White's fourth consecutive game with a defensive takeaway. Against the Houston Texans, Detroit Lions and Jacksonville Jaguars, White had a fumble recovery, and against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 14, he had a forced fumble.
