Defense Could be #1

Dec 26, 2004, 3:35 PM EST

The Redskins’ defense has virtually locked up the #1 ranking in the NFC and has a good shot at being first in the entire league.

 

Through 14 games, the Redskins have allowed 3,655 yards. In second in the conference is Tampa Bay, which has given up 3,981. That’s a difference of 326 yards. For the Bucs to catch the Redskins, they would have to hold their opponents in the last two games, Carolina and Arizona, to 163 yards per game less than the Redskins do. That’s a tall order.

 

Pittsburgh holds the NFL lead at 3,619 yards, an advantage of just 36 yards or 18 yards per each of their remaining games. The Steelers play Baltimore and Buffalo. This is so tight that it could hinge on a meaningless draw play in garbage time.

 

The fact that it might happen at all, however, is nothing short of amazing considering the turmoil and injuries that the unit has faced this year.

    the defense wound up in the number 3 spot, its not the defense they have to worry about its all on the offense,if they had just gone with ramsey and not picked up that washed up qb brunell they might have had a chance to do something this year.they need to quit trying to buy the superbowl and try to earn it for a season.it all falls on Dan “the worthless” Snyder,who knows about as much about football as a newborn baby.hey here is an idea lets look for a new owner this year.
