In a Week 16 drubbing of the Ravens, the Patriots forced four turnovers, two of which they turned into touchdowns. They sacked Joe Flacco four times and held the Ravens scoreless for the first 50 minutes of the game. There's a lot of variability in fantasy scoring for defensive points allowed, but the sacks, takeaways and touchdowns were good for 24 points. A number of defenses posted low-to-mid-20s scores this year, but the Patriots earn the honor because they did it in Week 16.
