Allstarjim Posted November 23, 2007 Share Posted November 23, 2007 Everyone knows that Minnesota's rush defense is the best in the league. But here's some other stats for you related to their pass defense: Minnesota opponents have 411 pass attempts against them, second most in the NFL. Despite the above stat, their leading sacker has only 4.5 sacks. Additionally, they only have 9 INTs on the season which ranks 20th in the NFL. Their pass completion % allowed is 65%, which is 6th highest in the NFL. They allow the MOST yards through the air per game in the NFL at 288 yards per game! Their opponents QB rating collectively on the season is 89.3, which is 10th highest in the NFL. Interestingly, though, they are 14th in the NFL (about middle of the pack) in TD passes allowed. All this says is we should be airing it out all day against them, but keep them honest with the run, of course. They seem to bend but don't break in the passing game, but we'll break 'em!
