Defense Outlook Week 11

Dolphins (DEF1) may not have produced to their sky-high standards of late, yet they still finished tied as the eighth-highest scoring unit of the week. Since Week 3 they’ve averaged 11 ppg (2nd-most in NFL) and forced eight interceptions. Over their last three games, they’ve scored two defensive touchdowns and recovered three fumbles. Look for Miami to keep their turnover party going in Week 11 against the Denver Broncos and QB Drew Lock, who is fresh off an abysmal four-interception performance. Half of Denver’s last four opposing D/ST have topped 15.0 points.

Saints (DEF14) has been phenomenal of late, totaling 30.0 points over their last two games, 10.0 more points than the next closest unit. Since Week 8 New Orleans has registered 10 sacks, since Week 9 they’ve forced seven turnovers. It’s hard not to ride with that production. With that said, a matchup with Atlanta puts them right outside our top-12 this week. The Falcons have not allowed a single defensive unit to top 5.0 points all season long, surrendering an average of just 3.11 ppg to D/STs (6th-fewest in NFL).

Raiders (DEF27) nearly bottom out in our rankings, a week after leading all units in scoring with 16.0 points. What gives, you may ask? Well, the Kansas City Chiefs, of course. It’s actually quite simple, don’t start defenses against Patrick Mahomes. Only one unit has topped 4.0 points vs. the Chiefs this year. Over K.C.’s last three games, opposing defenses have totaled 0.0 points.
