In contrast to yesterday’s top ten, in which we looked at some of the NFL’s most stalwart defenses, today we’re going to break down a few that aren’t quite so, um, good at their collective job. Below, you’ll see a list of the NFL defenses that allowed the most points to be scored by opposing offenses during the 2014 regular season.
1. The Oakland Raiders, despite the addition of Khalil Mack, allowed a league-high 452 points to be scored last season while their defense was on the field.
2. The Chicago Bears, who are normally known for their defensive prowess, let opposing teams score a pathetic (sorry, I call it like I see it) 442 points last year.
3. The Washington Redskins take today’s No. 3 spot, allowing 438 points to be put on the board in 2014.
(3*) 4. When the Tennessee Titans’ D was on the field last season, opposing teams were able to put-up 438 points.
5. The New Orleans Saints struggled through 2014, allowing an uncharacteristic 424 points to be scored on them.
6. The Atlanta Falcons allowed opposing offenses to put 417 points on the scoreboard last year.
7. The Jacksonville Jaguars hold the No. 7 spot on today’s list, with 412 points allowed in 2014.
8. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who have the No. 1 overall pick in the 2015 draft, allowed 410 points to be scored on them last season.
9. The New York Jets, somewhat unsurprisingly appearing today, allowed 401 points.
10. The Philadelphia Eagles’ D allowed opposing teams to score 400 points over the course of last year.
(10*) 11. The New York Giants also allowed 400 points to be put on the board against them in 2014.
