Under those guidelines, the Browns played like a top ten defense.
yardage is more telling IMO, many times a defense can start out in the feild goal range already, or even on their goal line...like after the Romo int on Wednesday, in that situation the D is giving up points no matter what, but they gave up no yards after that INT.
