Turnovers 


From http://www.footballdb.com/turnovers.html

Pretty interesting. Above average in INT's, but look at all those FF's - half must be Ninkovich and Spikes. Do that, and don't make mistakes on offense, and you too can lead the league in T/O differential. Again.

Re: Turnovers 


They've been up at the top for the last few years. It's great, but what they've done overall on the D the last 2 weeks may be better.

I think part of the issue vs Buffalo was they went for strips over tackles.  Another thing is better teams commit less TOs. Great thing to do and they no doubt practice it, but they can't count on then in Playoffs or let people get around them.

Re: Turnovers 


If memory serves, didn't the Browns get 8 turnovers on Sunday vs Pittsburgh?

Things can change pretty quickly up top, but +24 is pretty amazing.

Joe Philbin On what he sees from the Patriots that puts them ahead of the other AFC East teams

"Plus 24 is what I see.

"They take the ball away, I think Chicago has one more takeaway than them, but I believe if I'm not mistaken they're second in the league in takeaways. And then they lead the league with only eight giveaways. That's a great place to start if you want to talk about winning football games in the National Football League. It's a great credit to their players and coaches; these guys do a fantastic job. We're minus 10, that's not very good. They're plus 24, that's outstanding. That's a tremendous place to build you're program around. So I would say that's the one thing that jumps out at me."

They did. But the Pats were either #1 or #2 in T/O diffy last year too.
