Rex’s run ‘D’ history

Posted by Chris Brown on July 22, 2015 – 9:30 am

Our latest installment of Camp Countdown presented by M&T Bank focused on whether the run defense can crack the top 10 this season. They finished 11th last year, but slipped noticeably over the final 10 games of the season. One of the major positives in the run defense equation for the Bills this season is Rex Ryan’s track record when it comes to run defense. Since he was promoted to defensive coordinator in Baltimore in 2005, Ryan’s defenses have ranked in the top 10 in eight of the last 10 seasons.

Here’s a look at where Ryan’s defenses have ranked against the run when he’s making the defensive play calls. Of greatest notice is where his defenses ranked in his first year taking over with those respective clubs.

Baltimore (2005-2008) & New York (2009-2014)

Year Yards allowed Rank
2005 99.4 9th
2006 75.9 2nd
2007 79.3 2nd
2008 81.4 3rd
2009 98.6 8th
2010 90.9 3rd
2011 111.1 13th
2012 133.6 26th
2013 88.3 3rd
2014 93.1 5th
