Default The New England Patriots Were The Number One Defense This Year

Don't forget. Don't ever ever forget.

Number one is points against.

The true stat

Stopped our streak of 4 years in a row.

"B b b but the legion of boom's defense is why Seahawks got to the super bowl. Russell Wilson is a system qb."

Where y'all at ? Where you at?

number 1 "scoring" defense.

Houston was the true number 1 defense.

You obviously don't know sports.

Scoring defense doesn't equal best defense lol

Broncos had the best defense this year

The Pats just kept the Steeler offense to 9 points for the first 56 minutes of a playoff game and forced two turnovers. They made Brock and that entire offense last week look like a complete and utter joke, like they didn't even belong in the CFL, let alone NFL.

Been #1 scoring defense for regular season, Also #1 in Points Per Possession.

They have a great defense. The defense has played better than the offense this post-season. This is why they're a great team.

Good defense, yea.


Great?? Not so much.



They just kill the opponents so bad that they're forced to play catch up and play in desperation mode more times then not. Atlanta will be the ultimate test. No home field advantage. I'm sure they'll close the roof to so it'll play right into the Falcons hands.


Julio v Butler should be a fun matchup. And Atlanta uses their RBs out of the backfield probably the most along with NE.

THIS IS WHERE I SLAY BOAF YOU DUMB SHITS.

"Total defense " is yards allowed.

LAST TIME I CHECKED THE WINNER OF A NFL GAME IS WHO SCORES THE MOST POINTS. NOT YOARDS.

"Annnd. With 2 minutes to go... the Seahawks have to get 47 yOards to win the game!!! It's 351 to 305 yOards!!! Let's see if they can get the 47 yOards to win"



GTFO.

POINTS ALLOWED IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN YOARDS ALLOWED.

UNTIL THEY CHANGE THE SCORE TO YOARDS VS YOARDS.

NOW BOAF OF YALL, LOG OFF YOUR MOMS WI-FI AND GO GET SOME *****.

Chiefs also have a really good defense. Believe they were #1 in turnovers forced and 7th in PPP.

Why are you people arguing so much about points per game vs yards per game.

Why don't you just use BOTH?

Take yards allowed per game AND points per game and average it.

Boom. Problem solved. The result will be more meaningful than either one taken alone.

That would work IF NFL GAMES' OUTCOMES WERE DETERMINED BY YOARDS.

IF THEY WEIGHED YOARDS INTO THE SCORE OF THE GANE.

BUT THEY DONT.

WHOEVER ALLOWS THE LEAST AMOUNT OF POINTS WINS THE GAME.

PERIOD.

END OF STORY.

OUTCOME OF GAME IS DETERMINED BY A NOT B

THERFORE OBVIOUSLY STAT A IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN STAT B.

ITS BASIC LOGIC.

Broncos #21 offense.

They suck.

9-7 in a division with two 12-4 teams.



We lost our best defensive player

Bennet was out

Somehow we ranked high again

Not having earl against the Falcons?

Duh.

You are proving my point EXACTLY That football is a TEAM sport

Broncos defense was good but their offense was shit and hmmmmm let's see they went 9-7.

Duh.

ITS A TEAM SPORT.
