How did Buffalo's defense manage to shut down Tom Brady and make the Patriots look beatable? By solidly executing some deceptively simple coverage schemes -- and with solid contributions by some of the NFL's most underrated defenders.
You may not have noticed with the way some teams have lit up the scoreboard, but shutouts are actually up this year, especially if you ignore garbage-time scores. The Big Ten -- including Chase Young and the Ohio State Buckeyes -- is leading the defensive charge.

The Patriots defense is still historically great, but their offense is not. The Dolphins are still historically bad on both sides of the ball. Plus: Is Tampa Bay ... good? And introducing FO's September stars for Madden Ultimate Team.
The Chiefs and Patriots remain undefeated, but it wasn't easy for either of them. The Cowboys suffer their first loss of the year. The Seahawks get their first field goal of the year. The Dolphins take their first lead of the year (but still lose). And all hell breaks loose in Detroit.
