A couple stats for anyone curious:
tied for 2nd - 40+ yarders given up with 2. 20+ yarders given up 3rd with 16. Wonder how many of those were actually that long in the air? I would think those game from a short catch turned into a long gain. The Lions game Bell screen for 53? would be one of those 40+ yarders and that was a screen with a missed tackle.
Tied for 1st (ravens bears) in td's given up passing at 6.
2nd in QB rating at 72.6 against us, bears 1st at a ridiculous 62.0. Also, it's more impressive because we are 2nd in passing attempts against us at 41.4 a game behind only Miami at 44.
1st in ppg on d with 12.9.
Man it has been a pleasure watching this d the past few years. You don't realize how lucky we are until you go back and look at those d's giving up 30 a game. This is probably our best secondary in 10+ years. Maybe since the mid to late 90s.
