Yup! But trust me, I do believe it. (And I know that I am being a little bit biased Laughing )

Have to be impressed with Seattle given the caliber of opponent offensively

Cowboys, Packers, and Panthers had their worst game of the year offensively vs the Seahawks and all of them have shown they can put
points on the board

Plus you have to factor in their offense puts a lot more pressure on the D than the Niners and TExans D right now

Vikings deserve some consideration. I'd go with the Texans, however.

San Fran with Houston a close second.

If Seattle is an option then you should include at least 3 or 4 other teams because they're are probably on that next tier behind SF and Texans, also it won't so obvious that this thread is to pimp your team Laughing

I still think SF, it's really 1a 1b with the two but we haven't seen Texans tested against an explosive offense yet so we'll see.

I have to say San Fransisco. Albeit against two subpar offenses, what they've done the past two weeks is impressive.

Houston is a close second for me though.

I honestly think Philly is pretty damn good. Aside from Jackson and McCoy their entire offense sucks and puts them in bad spots yet they play good games. Got away with some DPI/DH calls today but still stifled the Steelers. I've yet to see an offense they haven't handled thus far this season.

Houston. I can only imagine if they had an elite NT. Shocked

I went with other just because I think Chicago's defense is up there with the rest of the teams listed.

One thing to Note; The Buffalo Bills this season in terms of points scored;

28 vs Jets
35 vs KC
24 vs CLE
28 vs NE

That is, through four weeks, 28.75 PPG.

They then came out this vs vs the 49ers and put up three points, three.

That 49ers defense has also held a pair of hihgly explosive offenses in the Packers and Lions to 22 and 19 points respectively. When you combine that with what they did last year and I have to put SF up the top still.

With the Texans you had a rookie in his first ever start so you are going to get a guy who is very nervous and not producting his best football (Seen it first hand, Arizona has played a rookie in week one each of the last three seasons), though the D did pretty well vs the Phins. They only really established QB they have faced in Peyton Manning they gave up 23 points and that included 89 and 80 yard touchdown drives.

I still like Arizona on the same level as Seattle and Chicago on a tier just below the Texans and 49ers, but whatever they decided to do over their past two games they need to stop and go back to what worked in weeks 1-3. They started giving up big plays all over the place (44 yards to Amendola, 51 yards to Givens, 80 yards to Hartline (Blown Coverage), 57 yards to Hartline)

But before they they had dealt well with both the Patriots and the Eagles offensively.

Best defense in the league, I would not hestiate to go with the 49ers, behind them is a bit of a mixer that involves a good few teams.

Most of the points they scored against the Jets were in garbage time. Once the Jets were up 41-7 with three interceptions of Fitzpatrick in the early third quarter, they started to just play to kill the clock.

Sub-par offenses? Buffalo lead the league in TDs heading to today's game.

San Francisco is the best, nastiest defense in the league.
