There’s a tie atop our team defense rankings this week as the two rankings both have the Broncos and Bears at the top but differ on who to start #1. I went with Denver since they’re at home, but Jeffrey went with the high-scoring Bears defense against the Cardinals. There’s major differences between our rankings after the top two, but hopefully they’ll give you a good idea of who you should start.

Here’s our top 15 team defenses for week 16:

ZT JL
1 Denver Broncos Cle 1.5 1 2
Chicago Bears at Ari 1.5 2 1
3 New England at Jac 4.5 4 5
4 San Francisco 49ers at Sea 5.5 8 3
5 Pittsburgh Steelers Cin 6.5 9 4
6 Houston Texans Min 7.5 5 10
Seattle Seahawks SF 7.5 6 9
8 Atlanta Falcons at Det 8.5 3 14
9 New York Giants at Bal 10.0 12 8
10 Cincinnati Bengals at Pit 12.5 14 11
11 Carolina Panthers Oak 13.0 13 13
12 Baltimore Ravens NYG 13.0 NR 6
13 Green Bay Packers Ten 13.5 7 NR
St. Louis Rams at TB 13.5 NR 7
15 Washington Redskins at Phi 15.0 10 NR

This week’s rankings from Jeffrey Littrell (JL) and me (ZT) were combined into our composite rankings. Follow either one of our rankings or the composite, but whichever you choose good luck to you this weekend. NR is for not ranked which counts as 20 for averaging purposes.
