Bucs LT Donald Penn, referring to a potential matchup Sunday against former Tampa Bay DE Michael Bennett, who has lined up on either side during Seattle’s 7-1 start.

In his first four NFL starts, Bucs rookie Mike Glennon has posted a better passer rating (78.0) than Andrew Luck of the Colts (77.1) through four games as a rookie in 2012.

Seahawks - 62.7

Chiefs - 70.0

Patriots - 70.6

49ers - 75.3

Saints - 76.3
