Quick Poll-Lions or Jets defense?

Postby utility-hook » Thu Oct 10, 2013 3:48 pm

Just a quick vote will do but if you would like to leave feedback, that would be great. Thanks

Jets are @ home against the Steelers. The Jets have been a solid defense against the run and not too shabby against the pass either. They have 16 sacks on the season but 8 of those came against the Bills so that number is a little misleading. Take out the Bills game and they are averaging 1.6 sacks per game. They only have 1 int and 2 fumble recoveries. The Steelers have sucked the 1st 4 games so far but they are coming off their bye week so they had extra time to maybe get their offensive woes worked out.

The Lions are @ Cleveland and are ranked 26th against the rush and 20th against the pass in my league. They are giving up a ton of yardage and are middle of the road on points given up. They have 10 sacks, 8 ints, 3 fumble recoveries, & 2 tds. The Browns are giving up lots of sacks but have been taking better care of the ball the last few games.

who should I go with?

Jets. I don't think the week off will help the Steelers. Their o-line is bad, Big Ben has no time to throw. He's been sacked 15 times already. That kind of pressure will cause turnovers.

I say Lions. They're doing well. Even if they do not get many interceptions/fumbles/TDs they'll keep the brown's points down very low.

Thanks for the help with mine. I like the Jets here by a hair. The Steelers' o-line is playing like crap, so I think the Jets are good for good sack and turnover numbers.

Def jets. Steelers line sucks. Jets will get plenty of sacks and a couple of int due to rushed passes

I think they are both very good plays this week. But, the Jets look to be about as safe of a DEF play as you will get. PIT o line has major trouble.

DET although creating turnovers early in the year are still giving up a lot of points. That's what I project against DET. Several TO's, but also some points scored.

Jets is safer, IMO.
