Before the season started, we projected Jacksonville to be one of the best teams in the league. Then Jack Del Rio took a tomahawk to his starting quarterback, the run defense was shredded by Tennessee and everyone in Jacksonville promptly stopped going to the games. Four straight wins later and the Jags are looking very much like an elite team, and they head into a Monday night showdown against Indy that neither team can afford to lose if they want to keep up with New England in the race for homefield. Oh, and David Garrard is playing lights-out. You got us on that one, Jack.

Just in case Sunday night did not make it clear, defense rules the NFL in 2016. The best teams in overall DVOA all combine top-five defenses with below-average offenses. The Eagles now lead the league in both defense and special teams and are back to No. 1 overall.
