- They ranked the lowest they have since in 10 years. This year they rank 17th in total yards/pg (total defense), the first time since 2002 they've been outside of the top 10 in defense.
- In terms of scoring defense, the Patriots were actually better. The Patriots ranked 9th in the league in points allowed, the Ravens were 12th.
- The Patriots and Ravens defenses were both tied for 15th in sacks.
- By comparison, the Texans ranked 7th in total defense, and tied for 9th in scoring defense with the Patriots. They were 5th in sacks.
What can we expect on Sunday from the Ravens' defense? Not as much as usual.
