Bears Top Sports Talk Defensive Rankings

 

The Chicago Bears jump to the top of defensive power rankings with their Monday night performance. They had five interceptions, one sack and allowed the Dallas Cowboys to score 18-points. The defensive rankings are based on points scored, sacks, interceptions and forced fumbles. Tampa Bay is ranked 11th, Miami is ranked 13th and Jacksonville is ranked 29th in the Sports Talk Defensive Rankings.

In the new era of the NFL where quarterbacks and wide receivers are protected, this formula more accurately judges the efficiency of an NFL defense.
