There are a lot of places in this article where I take a Football Outsiders concept -- like the fact that the 49ers defense ranks first in Second Level Yards -- and explain it in raw data form. And of course, when talking about the Patriots defense I bring up the old "field position" discussion. But it is still pretty interesting, even though the field position differential for the 49ers is even more interesting.

Five different teams from last year's DVOA top eight rank in the bottom half of the league through four weeks of 2014. What can we learn from other teams with similar starts in the past?
