Week 9 Fantasy Football Rankings: Pittsburgh and More Powerhouse Defenses to Secure Wins
Defense is the best offense isn’t that how the old mantra goes. Well, for teams like Pittsburgh and Baltimore this is a very true statement.
Although clichéd they focus on their stifling defensive tactics to lock up games.
Here are 3 afternoon and late game defenses to watch for.
The Steelers are playing the Ravens that statement right there really says it all.
The bitter rivalry is one that is hard hitting fast and is a staple of the NFL.
The Steelers showed just how good their defense can be last week only allowing Tom Brady to throw for 198 yards and two touchdowns.
Joe Flacco is not half the quarterback that Tom Brady is and the Steelers will get after him all day because of the Ravens lack of consistency with the running game.
New York Giants
The Giants can do a lot of the same things that the Pittsburgh Steelers did if all cylinders are clicking on defense.
The Giants at times have had issues with communication on defense appearing that they were not all on the same page. Last Sunday though the second half of the game against Miami the defense started to click.
As Justin Tuck and Osi Umenyiora get back to how they have been in the past the defense will only grow stronger by their ability to get at the quarterback.
Tom Brady should prepare for another rough day.
Green Bay Packers
The Packers have a very good defense and it is one that has not changed much from their title winning team last year.
The Packers in the off season did not focus on free agency they instead focused on getting their core players back or signed on longer term deals and it has paid off.
The Chargers stumbled last week and had mental lapses against the Kansas City Chiefs which ultimately left them falling in overtime.
