Posted By Matthew Sardo On October 30, 2012 @ 1:12 PM In Florida News,main feature,NFL | No Comments

[1]The Chicago Bears continue to force turnovers and again top the NFL  Defensive Power Rankings chart. The Bears are three interception returns for touchdowns away from the record, nine by the 1961 San Diego Chargers.  The Miami Dolphins move up to ninth place with a solid beat-down of the New York Jets. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers also move up four places to 17th in the league. They also placed a beat-down on the Minnesota Vikings. The Jacksonville Jaguars continue their stay in last place but soon my get some company from the Kansas City Chiefs.

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.
