Why is that disturbing? If you're making a lot of tackles, it means the offenses you're facing are making a lot of plays. Fewer tackles can mean a lot of things including that you have fewer opportunities because you're getting the other team off the field and your own offense is holding onto the ball.
Everyone's talking about the number of offensive plays, well we're tied with New England at this point for the 2nd highest number of offensive plays per game. Because of that stat, our defense has faced the 5th fewest defensive plays behind the Seahawks, Saints, Raiders (?), and Bengals.
That's a good stat.
