Sometimes defense can win championships, but at other times if you are terrible on coverage than these teams clearly can't cover well enough to save themselves to rally back in time.

The Top Ten

1 Indianapolis Colts Indianapolis Colts The Indianapolis Colts are an American football team based in Indianapolis, Indiana. The Colts compete in the National Football League as a member club of the American Football Conference South division.

No need to explain bad all around... the end. - htoutlaws2012

You know they’re desperate when they traded for a low tier cornerback from Green Bay. They’re desperate. And I think they’ll be worse off than Cleveland this season record wise. - PackFan2005

2 Oakland Raiders Oakland Raiders The Oakland Raiders are a professional American football franchise based in Oakland, California. The Raiders began playing in 1960 as a member club of the American Football League; they have been a member club of the National Football League since the 1970 AFL–NFL merger.

Yes the Oakland's Raiders defense is not all that to be completely honest sorry Gurden good luck trying to fix that awful defense, and now dealt your best player on the roster in Khalil Mack is an even bigger travesty. Which could be how the headlines could why your season could be if not realistically a failure that sole move alone. Terrible secondary a team that had problem starting the run, and a linebacking core that's okay. - htoutlaws2012

3 New York Jets New York Jets The New York Jets are a professional American football team located in the New York metropolitan area.

Secondary should be very good this, but linebackers completely unknown, and defensive front took a pretty bad downgraded getting rid of both Richardson, and Wilkerson will prove to be a glaring weakness in the defensive run against. - htoutlaws2012

4 Arizona Cardinals Arizona Cardinals The Arizona Cardinals are a professional American football franchise based in the Phoenix metropolitan area.

Aside from Peterson, and Jones are exceptionally excellent players I'm not in belief this team is as good as their deceiving pre-season record is indicated. I'd hope there doing the right thing by winning few games, but lose with honor. - htoutlaws2012

5 Miami Dolphins Miami Dolphins The Miami Dolphins are a professional American football franchise located in the Miami metropolitan area.

You have some good pieces, but that's literally what's gonna carry this team seeing how bad it is in the middle literally. the combination of Quinn, and Wake looks unique, and a secondary that is fairly solid looking, but that's it will they be consistent in stopping the pass in the middle seeing that they have an even worse group than the Lions do. - htoutlaws2012

6 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Tampa Bay Buccaneers The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are a professional American football franchise based in Tampa, Florida. The Buccaneers currently compete in the National Football League as a member team of the National Football Conference South division.

While I could of put much lower they do have a potentially good 3-4 defense on paper, bu their secondary I'm sorry is god awful if you go back to what they did last year against the pass was the worst in the league. - htoutlaws2012

7 Dallas Cowboys Dallas Cowboys The Dallas Cowboys are a professional American football team based in the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex. The Cowboys compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference East division.

There are some positives on this defense like Jaylon Smith could breakout into that leadership role, and DeMarcus Lawrence is a one man wrecking crew up front. Everything else though an unknown secondary, Sean Lee towards the tail end of his career. Can Taco Charlton, and Leighton Vander Esch be starters by seasons end? - htoutlaws2012

8 Kansas City Chiefs Kansas City Chiefs The Kansas City Chiefs are a professional American football team based in Kansas City, Missouri. The Chiefs compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's American Football Conference West division.

There alright in the middle, and with a healthy Eric Berry that's really all there is to it otherwise this defense could give up a lot of point especially early against some very difficult teams up ahead. - htoutlaws2012

9 Detroit Lions Detroit Lions The Detroit Lions are a professional American football team based in Detroit, Michigan. The Lions compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference North division. ...read more.

This defense really scares me, downgraded from defensive coordinators Terryl Austin his in Cincy meanwhile what does Detroit get a guy who was from Syracuse. While not a bad idea seeing the basketball squad suffocates opposing offenses in translation to football, and what I've seen I have every right to be considered. this does not look like a good 4-3 team thus why your seeing Bob Quinn pull desperation moves already before the season begins picking guys you never really heard of often. Word is no contract for Ansah whom this has got be the final year for him than what do you do in 2019? Jarrad Davis I'm hoping cleans up on missed because if he does not that linebacking core is gonna get eaten up once again in the middle to guess who guys like Gronkwoski, guys like Rudolph, Burton, Graham yeah this isn't looking good Nevin Lawson why did we need to re-sign him as a starter for aren't we suppose to have Tabor come in by now? - htoutlaws2012

10 San Francisco 49ers San Francisco 49ers The San Francisco 49ers are a professional American football team located in the San Francisco Bay Area.

49ers have a very average defense overall not terrible, but just okay overall. You got back first round picks who may start to gell perhaps this season. A secondary that should look more polished, and a linebacking that looks very bad, and a major concern now they got rid of one of their starters to the Lions. - htoutlaws2012

The Contenders

11 Green Bay Packers Green Bay Packers The Green Bay Packers are a professional American football team based in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The Packers compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference North division. The Packers have won 4 super bowls and 13 NFL championships.

Green Bay is gonna surprise some people defensively they got a very interesting 3-4 defense sure there banged up in the middle, but that secondary just got loaded at corner oh man that switch in the backfield will cause some headaches for any team. - htoutlaws2012

12 Cleveland Browns Cleveland Browns The Cleveland Browns are a professional American football team based in Cleveland, Ohio. The Browns compete in the National Football League as a member team of the American Football Conference North division. ...read more.

They'll be a middle of the road defense this year they have some very good pieces in certain spots, but they have a secondary that could be the biggest weak link that could feel vulnerable. - htoutlaws2012
