NFL Preseason Defense Rankings

1 of 33

Getting Defensive

By Jordan Raanan, XFINITY Sports

A good defense goes a long way in the NFL. The top seven teams in total defense last season had a combined 75-36-1 record. Three of them won their divisions. Five made the playoffs.

Stopping the opposition is vital to overall success. Defense isn't sexy like a quarterback, but it's almost as meaningful in a sport where big hits are as celebrated as touchdowns.

So who are some of the stronger defenses in the NFL? I put them all in order, 32-1. Look out for the top units on this list. They're likely to win a lot of games this season.(AP Photos)
