    Holdouts

    Who knows. This year is the first in a while where there are more than a few legit SB teams. KC, Pitt, NE, NO, LAR, even LAC.

    Is No. 1 Ranking Legit or a Mirage?

    I would agree with a lot of this, except the safeties. The weakest link on the D.

    3 points.

    The Jags have more offensive TOs per snap than the Bills. They have lost 10 fumbles and had 9 ints.......that equals 19 TO's by my math--only 3 more than the Bills. In the 4th Q of the Bears game, the Bears quickly scored another FG then the Bills O had a 75 yard, nearly 8 min TD drive. The Bills D came out and gave up another quick TD letting the Bears go 50 yards (on an idiotic PI by Gaines) in a minute. Also, the Buffalo D is 3rd in the league in yardage given up in penalties. 4th in overall number of penalties.

    It's 28 of the 359 points teams have scored against the Bills so far. The Defense is there to prevent the other team from scoring. They do that by getting off the field before the other teams scores. You can't add the ppg allowed, plus the 13th ranked 3rd down conversion percentage, plus the 10th worst RZ conversion %....and "easily" get the 5th best Defense in the league. They are advantages for sure. But the job of the D is the same--even on a short field. The Jags Offense has a higher TO per play % than the Bills. More like 8 than 4.

    The defensive TDs scored by the other team aren't counted (above you said it was 4 TDs, not exactly a "ridiculous amount over 10 games). The time of possession is not lopsided The Defense is on the field just under 30 min per game. The 1st 2 games were bad, but against NE and Indy, in the end, they gave up 376 and 387 yards total and over 100 yards rushing in both and produced zero turnovers. In the Indy game, the D game up TD drives of 75, 74, and 82 yards---in a row, before half time. Against the pats, they gave up scoring drives of 73, 58 and 85 yards. What part of that is "locked down"?

    Titans, Ravens, Bears, Jags, Skins, Texans.... That wasn't very hard. Look at 1st downs allowed, 3rd down conversion rate. They are fairly closely clustered, even with the Bills. Yet the Bills are the outlier with PPG allowed. They are only 14th in red zone attempts against them, yet they are the 10th worst in RZ % scores prevented. You could argue that the Bills and the Jets have similar Defenses (4.9 v 5.4 ypp, 18.7 v 19.8 1st downs allowed per game, 38 v 33% 3rd down conversion rate, 25.1 vs 25.4 ppg, 67 v 50% RZ success). No one would say that the Jets D is in the top 5--unless the only stat you are looking at is yards per game.

    WHY is Allen really starting?

    WTF??? That's exactly what it is. That's ALL it is, in fact.

    Yes. The 27 points excluded the turnover TDs. 37 yard line for a rested D early in the game? Make them punt. At worst a FG. The point is that for a top 3 or top 5 D, it shouldn't be inevitable that a team is going to score a TD if they have a "short field".
  12. Didn't Peterman have the hot hand going into week 1?

    The Chicago game is an example of how they really aren't that good of a defense. They were hardly on the field (26 min), yet they surrendered 27 points. At some point, a really good Defense can't average 25 mpg given up. If the opposing Offense is on your side of the 50 yard line to start a drive, the NFL rules still allow your Defense to force a punt.
