Defensive Ranking?
Mon Oct 15, 2012 7:57 am
  • I heard on the radio this morning that now the Seahawks have allowed the fewest points in the NFL (one point less than the niners)...93 points.

    We gave up a lot of yards yesterday, though, so I am sure our yardage ranking has gone down. Anyone know where we sit after yesterday?

  • #4 in yards/gm at 294.7.

    Edit: We fell behind the 49ers in yards per play. They're at 4.6, we're at 4.7 (when we were at 4.4, I believe.)

  • Well, in the points per game category, the Bears actually took the lead by not playing this week. If you go total points, you can't count them because they've had a bye week. As far as Yards Per Game, we are sitting in 4th place. The rankings look like this...

    1) 49ers.....275.8

    2) Cowboys....285.2

    3) Bears....291.2

    4) Seahawks....294.7

    5) Stealers....295.8

  • The way the Pats have been playing on offense recently, I fully expected our defensive rankings to drop. Nice to see us still in the top 5.

  • I expected us to drop farther than 4 for sure. I knew we would be Top 10 still, but we gave up a LOT of yards. Good to see we're still in the Top 5. Without a huge collapse (knock on wood), we should stay Top 5 the rest of the year, as the Pats were the best Offense we will see this season.

  • We will move back up for the rest of the season. We've played some really high caliber offenses so far. Look at the rest of that schedule and tell me there's a high powered offense on it. We might have some tough games and a few losses, but we're not going to give up yards like we did vs NE again this season.

    By the end of the year, we'll be either the #1 defense or #2 behind Chicago.
