This year the Detroit Lions defense could be one of the best defenses in the NFL. Last week defensive tackle Nick Fairley stated he felt the team was the best defense in the league. He is correct on one category.
@Lions: #Lions are the only @NFL team to allow less than 200 passing yards per game this year. http://t.co/yTf4R1r9av
The Lions pass defense has been phenomenal even with all the injuries to the secondary. The pressure from the front seven has really open things up for the Detroit Lions defense.
