I know its popular around here to diminish the defense based on opponent, whether, moon phase or whatever comes to mind, but this defense has been excellent. 3 TDs in 3 games. Its not easy to find defenses who do that against any competition. Depending on Seattles outcome it appears the Pats will be #2 in points allowed. 52/103 passing is just over 50% completed which is incredible. There is absolutely no doubt that the defense has improved dramatically.
