Here’s a stat that matters. Almost all these teams are Playoff-bound. That’s because they’re stingy with the points: averaging less than 20 PPG. Beware!

Pittsburgh Steelers

19.7 PPG. They’re not the Steel Curtain, but this Defense can surprise you. Suddenly, they’re young, fast and capable of making the Big Play. And with Big Ben, LeVeon Bell and Antonio Brown on the Offense side… Beware!

Kansas City Chiefs

19.6 PPG. The Chiefs combine a steady, error-free Offense with a bone-breaking, 3-downs-and-out Defense. Beware! – especially at Arrowhead.

Baltimore Ravens

18.8 PPG. Being in the top 5 on Defense is a Baltimore tradition, and 2016 is a return to form.

Minnesota Vikings

18.5 PPG. The Vikings might be too banged up on Offense to make the Playoffs, but Mike Zimmer has the magic touch on Defense.

Dallas Cowboys

18.4 PPG. It’s hard to score on Dallas when you hardly ever get the ball. Imagine how good they’d be if Greg Hardy weren’t insane…

Denver Broncos

18.4 PPG. No. 6 in PPG, No. 1 in sacks, same old stout Denver D, nut they’ll need a lot to break their way for another postseason bid.

New York Giants

17.9 PPG. When this team wins Super Bowls it does it on Defense. Here they are again!

Seattle Seahawks

16.8 PPG. The Legion of Boom is back, though it takes a hit without Earl Thomas.

New England Patriots

16.6 PPG. A lot of people talking about the absence of Gronk going into the Playoffs probably haven’t absorbed the fact that the Patriots are the NFL’s No. 1 Defense in PPG. Beware!

Knocking On The Door 1

Detroit Lions, 20.4. But dates with the Cowboys, then Aaron Rodgers and the Packers loom…

Knocking On The Door 2

Cincinnati Bengals, 20.9. That the Bengals are the only team on this list eliminated from the Playoffs by the end of Week 14 speaks to how important this stat is.

Knocking On The Door 3

Houston Texans, 21.0. This D is more than JJ Watt, and it will make noise in the Playoffs.
