In my opinion, the Steelers having the statistical #1 defense does not mean that they actually have the best defense in the NFL.
If you want to say they are the best because they are #1 in total yards, that is fine. You are allowed to do that.
Just as I am allowed to say that they are not the best defense because they cannot create turnovers at all and can barely put any pressure on the opposing QB. Not to mention all the 4th quarter leads we have lost this year because of this same stout defense.
Tell me, how have they done in the past five games in the 4th quarter?
