Alabama's Defense Studied The New England Patriots This Offseason

Alabama's defense was solid once again in 2014, but the Crimson Tide's prized unit didn't perform like it needed to in one category: forcing turnovers. 

Nick Saban's team ranked No. 58 in the country in turnover margin per game (0) and No. 77 in the nation in turnovers forced per game (1.5). 

That aspect of the game needs to be better for Alabama in 2015. So, the Crimson Tide's defensive players studied one of the NFL's best defenses at forcing turnovers: the New England Patriots.

Alabama's defense should be one of the country's best this season.

The Crimson Tide open their 2015 campaign Sept. 5 against Wisconsin.
