Infographic: Five Teams Rank In Top-10 In Offense, Defense DVOA

Dec 13, 2017 12:30 PM

The NFL has five teams ranking in the top-10 in DVOA on both Offense and Defense after Week 14. In an indication of how much turnover there's been in parts of the NFL, none of those five teams (Rams, Eagles, Vikings, Saints and Chargers) made the playoffs in 2016.

The Chiefs, Cowboys, Steelers, Falcons and Patriots also rank in the top-10 on offense, while the Jaguars, Broncos, Panthers, Ravens and Cardinals rank in the top-10 on defense.

The Seahawks, who have consistently been one of the NFL's top teams in DVOA during the Russell Wilson era, are just outside the top-10 in both categories.

Vikings Plan For Cam Newton: Hit Him Like A Running Back

Dec 7, 2017 8:46 AM

The Minnesota Vikings have a plan to try and contain Cam Newton this Sunday -- hit him like a running back.

The last time the Vikings played the Carolina Panthers, in September 2016, Newton was sacked a total of eight times by six different players.

"You have to be disciplined in your gaps," Everson Griffen said. "You have to get off, escape the block and, when he runs by design, you have to hit him like he's a running back and not like he's a quarterback, because he's not protected then.

"He's a big guy. You just hit him."
