For me the biggest surprise has been the performance of the D. If you had told me before the season started that at the end of week 4 the Bolts would have a top 5 defense in points allowed, I would have said, “I think they will be better, but lets not get carried away.”
the Bolts are 5th in the league in points allowed – giving up 15.8 per contest
But here we are, end of week 4 and the Bolts are 5th in the league in points allowed – giving up 15.8 per contest. In the last 3 games no team has scored more than 3 times and none have scored in the 4th quarter.
We can’t give all the props to the D for this achievement. Special teams has played extremely well consistently pinning opponents deep in their own territory. Also, the offense has done a good job keeping the ball out of the opponents hands while helping to win the field position battle.
What has been most surprising for you this year? Or have there been no surprises and this is exactly how you thought it would go down.
