I'm Matt Williamson with yard barker here to talk about the five.
Best defense is in the league, and we're counting down from 5 to 1.
But the Steelers, Patriots and Niners all tied to lead the league at just 4.
7 yards per play, which is remarkable.
Those three of the top are really hard to sort out, but before we get there, let's start with the Buffalo Bills.
They were great on this side of the ball last year, and there's really little reason to think there will address.
They keep adding youth into that side of the ball.
It's a very active defense, but one that does their job play after play.
It's not super flashy, but I think they're really well coached and I expect remain, Add murder, train Edmunds to regularly be listed amongst the best linebackers in football.
Expect him to blow up this year.
Fourth on my list is the Baltimore Ravens.
They were led by a phenomenal secondary, deep, talented and as a result, we're very, very blitz happy.
Now it's improvements.
Their front seven Clay's Campbell Guys like that.
The Ravens shouldn't have to rely on the blitz nearly as much to disrupt quarterbacks.
They also got a lot more active on the second level.
I think they can play it any way you want now, but still, I'm sure there'll be a very much an attacking defense.
I mentioned the top three and again, they're hard to sort out.
I'm gonna put the Niners at three, and it's really unfair to put San Francisco third.
But someone had to be very strong and athletic at all.
Levels really starts up front for San Francisco.
And even after trading away to force, Buckner shouldn't hurt them.
You know they get you on Kindle on the first round kept Derek Armstead.
The 40 Niners, by the way, are the only team that ended up on my top five on both offense and defense.
Put the Steelers or two they've been drafting on this ball on the side of the ball like crazy, and that includes their most use of their most recent first round pick.
And make a Fitzpatrick who looks like a home run edition.
Ah, very few holes on this unit and like like usual, Pittsburgh is very close to that very right.
The top of League for the third straight year in sacks but was different this year of Steelers pass.
Rush is they were winning farm or one on one matchups.
It wasn't is reliant on blitz and scheme, which is really promising, allows him to draw more people into coverage.
Put the Patriots won again.
These three teams were very close.
They, too, are built around a great secondary heavy man coverage team and a typical bait Bill Belichick fashion.
New England is very versatile on this side of the defense, taken the that week, the week they can adapt throughout the course of the game.
What they did for most most of last year, there was just historic, and that's why I put them one.
But I do think it's noteworthy that their level competition was also very favorable to So still, this group was no absolutely instrumental in the league's best turnover margin, and they also aggressively added to this side of the ball in the draft.
So expect the Patriot defense to be very strong once again.
I am at Williams with yard barker.
