    TACKLES
    MLB D.J. Williams (Bears | LLCoolGrey) - 61
    ROLB Lavonte David (Buccaneers | majesty95) - 48
    MLB Luke Kuechly (Panthers | ncsu12ddr) - 48

    Leading the league in tackles, D.J. Williams was clearly a key pickup for the Bears defense in the 2012 off-season. Williams has proven that he can fill the void left by future Hall of Famer, Brian Urlacher.


    TACKLES FOR LOSS
    ROLB Wesley Woodyard (Broncos | Phenom) - 13
    LE Bruce Irvin (Seahawks | LtJustice) - 13
    LOLB Justin Houston (Chiefs | redlishus) - 13

    It's no surprise that these three names are atop the TFL category. Their awareness coupled with their speed makes them prime candidates for throwing a wrench in any team's game plan.


    SACKS
    LE Bruce Irvin (Seahawks | LtJustice) - 9
    ROLB Robert Mathis (Colts | thafuture3886) - 8
    RE Demarcus Ware (Cowboys | CaptMoe) - 8

    Irvin, Mathis, and Ware each play for teams that boast top 10 status throughout the league. Their ability to get to the quarterback time and again certainly indicates why their respective teams are doing so well.


    INTS
    CB Antonio Cromartie (Jets | klaximilian) - 9
    MLB Daryl Smith (Ravens | Josh Barnes) - 8
    CB Brandon Carr (Cowboys | CaptMoe) - 8
    CB Casey Hayward (Packers | CSteud) - 8
    CB Vontae Davis (Colts | thafuture3886) - 8

    Two words... Ball Hawk. If you're playing against any of the above mentioned teams, do NOT challenge these dudes unless you are dying to turn the ball over.


    PASS DEFLECTIONS
    CB Dee Milliner (Jets | klaximilian) - 9
    CB Asante Samuel (Falcons | MrWitness36) - 8
    FS Charles Godfrey (Panthers | ncsu12ddr) - 8
    CB Vontae Davis (Colts | thafuture3886) - 8
    FS Chris Clemons (Dolphins | DJDunn6) - 8

    Great awareness and pursuit has put these defensive backs in position to break up pass plays time and again. I expect each of them to continue to improve moving forward.


    FORCED FUMBLES
    MLB Mychal Kendricks (Eagles | ferocious) - 3
    FS Dashon Goldson (Buccaneers | majesty95) - 3

    Great individual efforts by players who are on opposite sides of the spectrum as far as wins (Eagles | 8-2) and losses (Buccaneers | 1-9) .


    FUMBLE RECOVERIES
    DT Ndamukong Suh (Lions | heathh) - 2
    MLB Mason Foster (Buccaneers | majesty95) - 2
    RE Cliff Avril (Seahawks | LtJustice) - 2
    CB William Gay (Steelers | AveryB) - 2
    SS Bernard Pollard (Ravens | Josh Barnes) - 2
    RE Julius Peppers (Bears | LLCoolGrey) - 2
    LE Cedric Thornton (Eagles | ferocious) - 2

    This list is expected to change by the end of the season. Until then, the top honors are shared by seven different teams.


    BLOCKED KICKS
    ROLB Brian Orakpo (Redskins | Warhawk AKA dreadman) - 1

    Only one blocked kick recorded this season up to this point.


    SAFETIES
    DT Jurrell Casey (Titans | ThaBayouChef) - 1

    Only one safety recorded this season and that was by the Titans in week 6 against the Seahawks.


    DEFENSIVE TOUCHDOWNS
    FS Darian Stewart (Rams | Easy Dez It) - 2

    Only ONE defensive player has been able to find the end zone more than once this season. Something tells me it won't be his last.

    This list tells me one thing. Ball Hawk is way overpowered.

    Good stuff CHUNKNESS

    Ball hawk is really toned down this year, IMO. Last was much more ridiculous than this year. Coverage may be swayed a little more to help defenses, but the ball hawk itself isn't nearly as powerful as last year. IMO.

    That blocked punt came against the Packers.. They were deep in their own endzone.... and the punt block actually worked!

    I will agree with you that ball hawk was overpowered on the "default" settings. We need to understand that these stats reflect our current sliders AND what they were prior to being adjusted mid-season. Therefore, the INT stats will be somewhat inflated over the 2013 regular season. The INT stats have already been improved by almost 60% as we were averaging 80 INT's per week league wide and it dropped to 50-60 average following the INT slider adjustment. That being said, our league's INT rate will usually be greater than that of the NFL. It's just a nature of our video game league and the human error involved.
