Top Ten Defenses In the NFL


The Top Ten

1 1985 Chicago Bears

Only thing we should be voting on is #2.

The Monsters of the Midway - ZachW97

There is no #2. Only the 85 Bears.

2 1976 Pittsburgh Steelers

Best Defense of all time. When the injury depleted Steelers offense started 1-4, the Steelers defense knew they couldn't allow anyone to score the rest of the season, and they didn't!

23-6, 27-0, 23-0, 45-0, 14-3, 32-16, 7-3, 42-0 and 21-0 to finish with 9 straight wins and the division title!

It's all about the steel curtain!

That team just have a lot of d

3 1966 Green Bay Packers

Thats why they won the first two superbowls - ZachW97

Nothing got past them... at all.

4 2000 Baltimore Ravens

Not even the 85 bears come close

Ray Lewis and Rod Woodson - ZachW97

One of the best iv'e ever seen. Ray Lewis!, Ed reed, Haloti Ngata. Did I also mention they won the super bowl that year? VOTE FOR THEM

5 1969 Kansas City Chiefs
6 2002 Tampa Bay Buccanears

Number 6!? Easily top of all time

The Old Bucco's Nothing got past'em

7 1977 Atlanta Falcons

This team has held every defensive stat that a team could have and did it just the teams 12th season. They went 7-7 because they had a historic worst offense but the defense helped the team from a potential 0-14 season and is very underrated. I can't believe this team is judged by record when they helped a terrible offense avoid the worst possible record

8 2013 Seattle Seahawks

Nah cheaters shouldn't be on this list

There so awesome all of the. Mostly Richard sherman remember seahawks vs 49ers he is a awesome defensive back

9 1956 New York Giants
10 1984 San Francisco 49ers

The Contenders

11 2015 Denver Broncos


12 1969 Minnesota Vikings
13 1978 Dallas Cowboys
14 1991 Philadelphia Eagles

You all have to be stupid 1991 eagles are top five EVER and hands down the best in the last thirty years

15 2016 Dallas Cowboys
16 1972 Miami Dolphins

The most under-appreciated fantastic defense in NFL History.

You know about the 1972 Fish - the Perfect Season Dolphins went 14-0 in
the regular season, allowing just 171 points; then they added three
playoff wins, allowing a total of 35 points, to finish 17-0.

17 1986 New York Giants
18 2016 Houston Texans
19 2009 Chicago Bears
