A comparison of Defenses

I wanted to see how our run defense compared to the top 3 rush defenses in the NFL. While these numbers don't tell the whole story. I think they do give an indication of where some of our problems are. Some of the results were suprising to me. Especially the stats for our defensive linemen.
