Summary

The Patriots defense had their struggles last season, ranking 25th overall while allowing 20.7 points per game. The good news was New England limited the points some despite allowing big yardage totals. It was a bend but don't break defense many weeks. The big struggles for the defense came against the pass, ranking 29th overall. The secondary did cause some turnovers, getting 20 interceptions but also allowed some big plays. With the secondary struggling, many teams didn't take to the run too often, helping that ranking. The Patriots were ninth against the rush. The addition of rookie defensive end Chandler Jones hopes to help the pass rush, a unit which was up and down last year. Rob Ninkovich does pretty well at the other pass rushing spot, racking up eight sacks last year. The secondary needs cornerbacks Aqib Talib and Alfonzo Dennard to make improvements next season if this unit hopes to improve much on last season. The duo has plenty of ability but need to show more consistency. The special teams aren't too impressive but the addition of Leon Washington could be a little boost to the return game. Washington has a history of producing well in this role but might be past his prime. Fantasy Outlook: The Patriots always seem to do pretty well in scoring for fantasy teams. They are opportunistic and get after the quarterback pretty well. This is a unit that seems to find the end zone a little more than your average defense. We like them as a top-10 fantasy defense. Just don't expect great numbers when it comes to yards and points allowed.

comments about Chandler Jones

Notes

New England Patriots DE Chandler Jones is taking up mixed martial arts training during the offseason. Jones's brother is UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, and Chandler believes training with his brother can help him in hand-to-hand combat at the line of scrimmage. 'That definitely helps you,' Jones said. '(Jon) has a boxing coach, a muay Thai coach and a jiu jitsu coach. That helps a lot when you're tugging, playing in the trenches. My biggest thing is I try to get my hands inside before blockers touch me so if I work on my hand speed, that'll be a great aspect to add to my game.'
