Bet­ter late

Tampa Bay Times - - Nfl -

WR Adam Humphries has stepped up his play late in games this year. He has nine catches for 125 yards in the fourth quar­ter, more than his pro­duc­tion in the first three quar­ters com­bined (eight for 82). Humphries had a 38-yard catch to set up a touch­down as the Bucs ral­lied to beat the Giants and a 20yard catch in the fi­nal minute as they tried to catch the Pa­tri­ots but fell short.

In all, he ranks eighth in the NFL in fourth-quar­ter catches and yards, lead­ing the Bucs in both cat­e­gories.

“He shows up ev­ery game,” QB Jameis Win­ston said Thurs­day. “If you watch a game, you’re go­ing to see Adam Humphries hav­ing a long run, break­ing a tackle, mak­ing a fan­tas­tic catch. That’s just what he is. He’s a baller.”
