Defensive pieces

1. Tennessee Titans

The Titans are absolutely loaded on defense whether you know it or not. They are the only team in the league with four players with 4 sacks or more, and that number is fitting for a team that is currently second in sacks.

Brian Orakpo has been dominant this year and now has 7 sacks on the season. He is trailed by Jurrell Casey and Wesley Woodyard both with 5 each. Rounding that group of top end pass rushers is Derrick Morgan who has 4.5 despite being limited.

A lot of that is skill, but even more is that the Titans have maybe the best DC in the league in Dick LeBeau who has stated that he loves the Titans and Nashville and that if someone wants him next year he will likely stay.

2. Cleveland Browns

-The Browns are 22nd in sacks this year, and they don’t have anyone who screams cornerstone. Not only that, but Joe Haden seems to be fading and is not having a great year with injuries and just bad play.

3. New Orleans Saints (maybe)

Worst defense in the league historically. Not much else to say.

4. Miami Dolphins

The Dolphins have two very nice pieces in Cameron Wake and Ndamukong Suh, but outside of that the DB group has overachieved and probably aren’t as good as they look.

5. Detroit Lions

The Lions really don’t have anything on that side of the ball with DeAndre Levy out and who knows how he will recover from that injury.
