The Chicago Bears remain a top the Sports Talk Florida Defensive Power Rankings with their three sack, two interceptions and only allowing the Jacksonville Jaguars to score three points. The Jaguars fell to 31st in the league after allowing 41-points to the Bears. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers also fell from 11th to 18th during the bye since they had no sacks, interceptions or forced fumbles. The Miami Dolphins moved up to ninth in the league after their win against the Cincinnati Bengals. The Dolphins had three sacks, two forced fumbles, two interceptions and allowed 13 points on Sunday.

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.
