One thing that was really noticeable this year was that the defense scored zero points. In fact, only seven points were scored all year other than as a result of a Cassel-led offensive drive. I think last year, the defense scored points in more than half the games -- probably not unusual since teams were often playing from behind and pressing. Still, another indication of how rare this was is to look at this week's wild card games: The defense scored points in 3 of 4 (and that team won all three games). I wonder how many other teams in the NFL had zero defensive points scored. I bet it's virtually none. Is this just a weird anomoly? Something about our scheme? Or something else? Overall, I thought the defense really got better as the year went on, but this is interesting.
