Smart stats instead of raw stats. Yards per play is a much better indicator of defense that total yards. If one D faces 50 plays and the other faces 70 looking at total yardage can fool you. You can go another step and look at the stats put up by sites like football outsiders. Through the year they adjust for opponent faced so your defensive ranking gets a bump for playing Oklahoma instead of So Miss. They also remove yardage from garbage time when most defenses are in the prevent and not actually trying to force stops.
Just looking at total yardage will give you an incorrect assumption of any defense that faces a lot of hurry up teams, or belongs to a program that runs hurry up on offense.
