Top 10 Defensive Rankings: Week 15

Here are the top-ten defensive rankings for week 15. This week's doesn't feature too many changes. The Steelers are still a dominant number 1. They did indeed slip to second in rushing yards to the Vikings. What would you expect from the Vikings 'D' when they play against the worst rushing attack in the league? The Colts surprisingly fell out of the top-ten to the Panthers after a win over the Lions. Dallas is moving up quick after great defensive games against the Steelers and Giants. I was too disgusted with the Cardinals defensive stats to post them with the top-ten so here they are: AZ Cardinals: YPG: 318.6, RYPG: 106.7, PYPG: 211.9, and PPG: 25.6. If you care to know how they averaged out, they were a whopping 17.5.
