We can throw out a bunch of stats to show how good the Ravens defense has been this season. The Ravens are second in the NFL in scoring defense and third in yards allowed. They have forced a league-high 14 turnovers. And the Baltimore defense has scored as many touchdowns (four) as it has allowed. That's a fun one.
Here's another: The Ravens have had the AFC's Defensive Player of the Week three times in four weeks.
In Week 1, it was Terrell Suggs, who sacked Ben Roethlisberger three times. Two weeks later, it was Ray Lewis, who had 10 tackles and a sack against the Rams. Now Jarret Johnson is getting some love. The Ravens outside linebacker won the award this week after scoring on a 26-yard fumble return against the Jets.
