I check these rankings everyweek. They are a good starting point, and No. they are not perfect, but they show you what the numbers say and from there you should use common sense. For example, Pittsburg may very well shut down the Phili offense, but who's going to take that chance. Everyone knows TO and McNabb have huge potential to be explosive, no matter what the numbers say. So dont go picking Pitts D and then bitch that you got burned. That's a high risk, high reward play. Just remember that when using these rankings. ;-D

I don't think this is true at all. What brings you to make this comparison?

Didn't Buffalo hold CMart to 70 yards last time in a 16-14 squeaker?

Brut - you're right about the fact that Martin ran all over the Dolphins in both games and Buffalo held him to 77 yds, but compare the first two games... Martin's performance is largely irrelevant. What is relevant is the fact that the Jets don't turn the ball over and Penny is rarely sacked. Both Miami and Buffalo played the Jets tough in weeks 4 and 5...

Week 4 - Miami's D stats: 17 pts allowed, 3 sacks, 1 int, 0 FR
Week 5 - Buffalo's D stats: 16 pts allowed, 2 sacks, 0 int, 1 FR

Even though they only gave up 16 points, the fact of the matter remains that the Jets don't turn the ball over. And as far as performances against the Jets, Buffalo's week 5 performance is pretty similar to Miami's week 4 performance. Now, Miami's second game against the Jets was a Monday Night blowout, and you might assume that Buf won't give up 41 points. However, based on week 5, they are still not a good play - and their rating reflects it.

Buffalo's D: 10pts allowed, 1 sack, 1 int, 1 DFR, 1 safety, 214 yards allowed.

That's a nice 17 points for me so far from Buffalo's D.

Still not a good play? Still worthy of 26th of 28 this week?
