Much has been said and written about the ineffectual Colts offense this year (at least in comparison to last season), and at least some of that can be contributed to the unexpected play of the Colts defense. When looking at that unit, look no further than Pro Bowl DE Dwight Freeney. In Sunday's 13-7 win over Cleveland, Freeney jumped out with three sacks, a forced fumble and 5-1 tackles. All three of his sacks came in the first half…

It's the fourth time in Freeney's NFL career that he's had three or more sacks in one game…

Three columns and three write-ups on Colts DE Robert Mathis. He keeps making plays in somewhat limited time, as evidenced Sunday with 3-0 tackles and another sack. That's one sack in every game this year for Mathis…

Look for Colts S Bob Sanders, who is an absolute giant in run defense, to really begin to shine. He had 6-0 tackles and all but one was stopping Ruben Droughns. And when Sanders tackles you, you know it. None of his tackles were for plays longer than three yards…

Colts MLB Gary Brackett has been averaging about ten total tackles per game thus far, including 8-4 on Sunday…

With 7-3 tackles Sunday, Browns LB Andra Davis now has double digit tackles in all three games this year…

OK, I know I've been singing praises on Dolphins LB Zach Thomas ever since I started writing this column last season, but this is getting ridiculous. Thomas, who has double digit total tackles in every game, had a big game even for him in Miami's 27-24 win over Carolina. He had 9-7 tackles, a sack and a forced fumble. That's sixteen total tackles. The next closest Dolphin had four…

Thomas might have had the big numbers, but it was an interception by Miami safety Lance Schulters that helped set up the game-winning field goal near the end of the game…

The 30 year-old Schulters added 2-2 tackles, a sack and a forced fumble. He came to Miami after an injury-marred 2004 campaign with Tennessee and he's already providing dividends with some big plays and veteran leadership…

Losing DT Kris Jenkins was bad enough for Carolina, but with LB Will Witherspoon out Sunday with a knee injury, the defense doesn't look quite the same. Witherspoon's savvy play and speed was missing, with his replacement, Vinny Ciurciu only getting 1-2 tackles…

Witherspoon's knee injury, suffered some time during their week two win over the Patriots, is not considered serious and some thought he would play Sunday. He didn't, but look for him possibly next Monday Night against Green Bay…

Second year safety Will Allen, subbing in for injured Dexter Jackson, picked off two Brett Favre passes en route to helping Tampa Bay beat Green Bay 17-16. The second interception came with just five minutes remaining as the Packers were near midfield…

Bengals safety Madieu Williams had a bit of a slow start for the team this year. Well, he led the team in tackles in Sunday's 24-7 win over Chicago. Williams added an interception (one of five overall for the team) to go with his 8-1 tackles. Williams hopes to follow-up last year's impressive rookie season with another 100+ total tackles this year…

Atlanta DT Rod Coleman continues to show that few dominate the position like he does. In Sunday's 24-16 win over Buffalo, Coleman contributed 4-1 tackles, a forced fumble and a pair of sacks. He now has three sacks on the year. Sometimes it seems like as Coleman goes, so goes the Falcons…

After a week one performance with only a single tackles, Falcons MLB Hartwell has responded with back to back games with eight total tackles…

With LB Takeo Spikes down for the year with an Achilles injury, don't forget to grab Angelo Crowell in his stead…

It looked like the Tennessee Titans were cruising along and were going to route the Rams when Rams safety Adam Archuleta intercepted a Steve McNair pass in the second quarter and returned it 85 yards for the score. They were the first points the Rams team was able to muster to that point. The Rams went on to win 31-27. Archuleta added six solo tackles…

Another game, another sack for Rams DE Leonard Little…

I thought it was kinda neat to see that Titans DE Kyle Vanden Bosch had a career-high three sacks last week against Baltimore. I also felt he was maligned unjustly as he seemed to be constantly plagued by injuries. Of course, I knew it was likely one little spark in an otherwise an unspectacular season to come…

Well, whaddya know, Vanden Bosch comes right back after his three sack game with a two sack performance in the Titans loss to the Rams. He also had 5-1 tackles and a forced fumble. He currently leads the league in sacks with five…

Vanden Bosch always had the talent but his two major knee injuries as a pro held him back. Is he on the way to a big season? Hard to say, but fellow Titan DE's Antwan Odom, Travis LaBoy and Bo Schobel have not been getting the job done for one reason or another and Vanden Bosch will get every opportunity to succeed now until he shows otherwise…

In his first game as a starter, because of Darwin Walker's thigh injury, Eagles DT Mike Patterson had his first sack in Philly's 23-20 win over Oakland…

Eagles LB Jeremiah Trotter was ejected just prior to his opening day game and in week two had only a couple tackles, but Sunday he made his presence felt with 9-0 tackles and a forced fumble…

Raiders rookie LB Kirk Morrison continues to roll along, as he had 7-1 tackles in his second NFL start. He leads the Raiders in tackles…

It seems like someone new pops up every week with career-high type numbers. This week's winner is Paul Spicer, a veteran DE for the Jaguars. Spicer grabbed the spotlight Sunday in Jacksonville's 26-20 win over the Jets by getting three sacks and adding 6-0 tackles and a forced fumble…

Spicer is an interesting play now that he's won the starting job, but I wouldn't count on him providing big numbers going forward…

New York Jets star DE John Abraham continues to prove that when he's healthy and on the field, his impact is enormous. In Sunday's loss to the Jaguars, Abraham had 8-2 tackles, a sack and a forced fumble. Thus far this year, he has a sack in each game. Over his career, he averages over 12 sacks per 16 games. Problem is that he's only played in more than 12 games in two of his first five NFL seasons…

Jets rookie safety Kerry Rhodes continues to supply solid play and had 6-0 tackles Sunday with an interception…

San Francisco safety Tony Parrish looks to be on his way to another nice season. On Sunday, he had his best game of the year in a 49er 34-31 loss to Dallas, as Parrish had 7-2 tackles and added a pair of interceptions. His first interception was in the first half and Parrish returned the pick 34 yards for a touchdown that gave the 49ers a 21-7 lead. His heroics weren't enough though, as Dallas came back for the win…

With the New England Patriots using more of the 4-3 defense, Pro Bowl DE Richard Seymour has become a solid fantasy play. In Sunday's 23-20 win over Pittsburgh, Seymour had a pair of sacks (his first of the season) to go with 4-0 tackles…

Steelers CB Ike Taylor had a big game with 11-4 tackles, but he wasn't alone. LB James Farrior had 9-6 tackles and a sack and LB Clark Haggans added 7-3 tackles, a sack and a pair of forced fumbles…

He might be 32 years old, but Chargers LB Donnie Edwards roams the field like few others. In Sunday's 45-23 win over the Giants, Edwards had 8-4 tackles, a sack and a forced fumble…

Until next week…
