Even in today’s high-scoring NFL, defense is crucial. The playoff picture will be solidified this weekend, and as that old clichéd adage goes, “Defense wins championships.” I know, I know… I threw up a little writing it. But, it holds true.

Further back, the No. 1 ranked defense (Seahawks) obliterated the top-ranked offense (Broncos).
So, what defenses could look to make a run at the Super Bowl this year?
