Stampede Blue: Replicating Last Week's Defense

Sure, Peyton Manning and his offensive cohorts receive the lion’s share of the praise when discussing the Indianapolis Colts, and rightly so. But last week, it was the Colts defense that put on a show, holding the Ravens to a FG. The Colts have owned the Ravens recently, and the Colts defense has been especially tough on them. Stampede Blue reports:

The Colts have now gone 3 straight games against the Ravens without allowing a Touchdown. Pretty awesome. They’ve also gone 2 straight Playoff games against the Ravens without allowing a Touchdown.

That was the Ravens, does it matter this week? It could, since philosophically the Ravens and the Jets are very similar teams. Not necessarily schematically, but their strengths and weaknesses are similar.

Consider:

Offense rankings:
Yds/game: Ravens 13th, Jets 20th
Pass yds/game: Ravens 18th, Jets 31st
Rush yds/game: Jets 1st, Ravens 5th

Defense rankings:
Yds/game: Jets 1st, Ravens 3rd
Pass yds/game: Jets 1st, Ravens 8th
Rush yds/game: Ravens 5th, Jets 8th
