||Julius Peppers against what's left of the St. Louis offensive line is illegal in 23 states and several territories. Fortunately, Illinois is not one of them.
||Yes, the Cardinals. They made Tom Brady look like Blaine Gabbert, and now they get an Eagles team that's turned the ball over nine times already.
||Seattle's turned the ball over just twice, but it's still a rookie quarterback and it's still a Packers defense that leads the NFL in sacks.
||You just know Wade Phillips was watching Monday night and has more than a few ways for his defense to take advantage of Peyton Manning's shortcomings.
||Philly had a couple years to figure out Kevin Kolb's shortcomings; now they get to take advantage of them.
||Rex Ryan's Jets can still play some defense, and you can bet they'll cook up something special for a rookie quarterback.
||If Arizona's defense can make Tom Brady look mortal in his own place, you have to like Ray Lewis & Co.'s chances of doing the same in Baltimore.
||Cleveland, second in the league in defensive fantasy points, against last season's interception leader. Who needs Joe Haden?
||Chicago has served up a combo platter of nine sacks and five picks; Jeff Fisher can find a way to take advantage of those opportunities.
||The Vikings have been relatively mistake free--against Jacksonville and Indy. This week the Niners brings a whole new level of defensive pressure to town.
||Buffalo has always fielded a decent fantasy defense; they'll get a chance to prove they still can against a rookie QB and his equally young troops.
||No team has served up a more potent cocktail of sacks, turnovers, and defensive TDs than KC; the Saints don't even need a bounty to collect!
||The Falcons picked Peyton three times in a quarter; odds are they can find a way to cause problems for Philip Rivers as well.
||This one pits a vastly improved New England defense against a Ravens offense that's far less conservative than in past years.
||That 12th Man can be a bugger, even for a tested veteran like Aaron Rodgers.
||You'd think with the pressure the Giants put on opposing QBs they'd be a more productive fantasy defense. That hasn't proven to be true.
||Houston has yet to turn the ball over this season, but between Champ Bailey, Von Miller and Elvis Dumerville the Broncos apply enough heat to change that.
||Not only are the Titans failing to score points, they've got a shaky offensive line and a QB who loves to take chances.
||The Bengals have allowed a league-high 10 sacks; if only Brian Orakpo was around for this one. Can the Geico caveman get suited up by Sunday?
||This is not your father's Steelers defense, or even your older brother's. Carson Palmer isn't turning the ball over like last year, either. Hence the ranking.
||No team has surrendered fewer fantasy points to defenses, but the way the Chargers have played thus far earns them at least the benefit of the doubt.
||Indy is still in the transitional phase of its defense, but a date with Blaine Gabbert and the Jaguars could allow for some rapid growth.
||Eventually Jared Allen is going to get to the quarterback. Maybe even this week.
||Eric Wright's return of the Eli pick might be the best broken-field running you'll see this year. Why can't he do the same to Tony Romo?
||You'd like to see a little more from a Dallas defense than the one turnover they've forced. Actually, you'd like to see a lot more.
||Miami's defense gets the short straw, but they're a solid unit and Mark Sanchez had been known to make a mistake or two.
||The Bucs picked Eli three times in the first half; Carolina's secondary has an opportunity to take advantage.
||RG3 has turned the ball over just once and avoided all but two sacks. This is a tough row to hoe for the Bengals D.
||One sack? When does Tamba Hali come back? Probably won't matter in New Orleans, the way Drew Brees gets rid of the ball.
||Tennessee has enough problems scoring points on the offensive side of the ball, let alone worrying about generating defensive points.
||Andrew Luck isn't playing like a rookie, and the Jaguars defense isn't playing well enough for you to pay attention to them.
||The Raiders are one of just two teams who have yet to force a turnover this year. The Steelers have served up only one, so this doesn't look promising.
